(305 ILCS 5/5-13.2)
Notice of claim for payment or against estate.
If the Illinois Department determines, more than 120 days after a person
becomes an institutionalized person, that (i) the institutionalized person, the
institutionalized person's spouse, or any other person is required under this
Code to reimburse the Illinois Department for any part of the amount of medical
assistance provided under this Article to or on behalf of the institutionalized
person or (ii) the institutionalized person's estate is liable for any amount
of medical assistance provided to or on behalf of the institutionalized person,
the Illinois Department shall not make any claim for payment of that amount on
demand, but rather shall establish, in cooperation with the institutionalized
person (and that person's spouse or primary caretaker, if applicable), a
schedule for payment of the amount owed to the Illinois Department.
