20 ILCS 3960/12.4 new

Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act. Provides that if a hospital reduces any service it offers by 50% or more according to rules adopted by the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, then within 30 days after reducing the service, the hospital must give written notice of the reduction in service to the Board, the Department of Public Health, and the State Senator and 2 State Representatives serving the legislative district in which the hospital is located. Requires the Board to adopt rules to implement these provisions, subject to appropriations.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions substantially similar to those of House Bill 4980, but with changes that include the following: (1) makes the provisions applicable to a hospital's reduction of any category of service specified in the Illinois Administrative Code (instead of any service the hospital offers); (2) deletes a provision making implementation subject to appropriations; and (3) requires the Health Facilities Planning Board to adopt rules that specify how each health care service is defined.
