Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

210 ILCS 3/20

    (210 ILCS 3/20)
    Sec. 20. Board responsibilities. The State Board of Health shall have the responsibilities set forth in this Section.
    (a) The Board shall investigate new health care delivery models and recommend to the Governor and the General Assembly, through the Department, those models that should be authorized as alternative health care models for which demonstration programs should be initiated. In its deliberations, the Board shall use the following criteria:
        (1) The feasibility of operating the model in
Illinois, based on a review of the experience in other states including the impact on health professionals of other health care programs or facilities.
        (2) The potential of the model to meet an unmet need.
        (3) The potential of the model to reduce health care
costs to consumers, costs to third party payors, and aggregate costs to the public.
        (4) The potential of the model to maintain or improve
the standards of health care delivery in some measurable fashion.
        (5) The potential of the model to provide increased
choices or access for patients.
    (b) The Board shall evaluate and make recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly, through the Department, regarding alternative health care model demonstration programs established under this Act, at the midpoint and end of the period of operation of the demonstration programs. The report shall include, at a minimum, the following:
        (1) Whether the alternative health care models
improved access to health care for their service populations in the State.
        (2) The quality of care provided by the alternative
health care models as may be evidenced by health outcomes, surveillance reports, and administrative actions taken by the Department.
        (3) The cost and cost effectiveness to the public,
third-party payors, and government of the alternative health care models, including the impact of pilot programs on aggregate health care costs in the area. In addition to any other information collected by the Board under this Section, the Board shall collect from postsurgical recovery care centers uniform billing data substantially the same as specified in Section 4-2(e) of the Illinois Health Finance Reform Act. To facilitate its evaluation of that data, the Board shall forward a copy of the data to the Illinois Health Care Cost Containment Council. All patient identifiers shall be removed from the data before it is submitted to the Board or Council.
        (4) The impact of the alternative health care models
on the health care system in that area, including changing patterns of patient demand and utilization, financial viability, and feasibility of operation of service in inpatient and alternative models in the area.
        (5) The implementation by alternative health care
models of any special commitments made during application review to the Health Facilities and Services Review Board.
        (6) The continuation, expansion, or modification of
the alternative health care models.
    (c) The Board shall advise the Department on the definition and scope of alternative health care models demonstration programs.
    (d) In carrying out its responsibilities under this Section, the Board shall seek the advice of other Department advisory boards or committees that may be impacted by the alternative health care model or the proposed model of health care delivery. The Board shall also seek input from other interested parties, which may include holding public hearings.
    (e) The Board shall otherwise advise the Department on the administration of the Act as the Board deems appropriate.
