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.

215 ILCS 5/356q

    (215 ILCS 5/356q)
    Sec. 356q. On or after the effective date of this Section, every insurer which delivers or issues for delivery in this State a group accident and health policy providing coverage for hospital, medical, or surgical treatment on an expense-incurred basis shall offer, for an additional premium and subject to the insurer's standard of insurability, optional coverage for the reasonable and necessary medical treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder and craniomandibular disorder. The group policyholder shall accept or reject the coverage in writing on the application or an amendment thereto for the master group policy. Benefits may be subject to the same pre-existing conditions, limitations, deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance that generally apply to any other sickness. The maximum lifetime benefits for temporomandibular joint disorder and craniomandibular treatment shall be no less than $2,500. Nothing herein shall prevent an insurer from including such coverage for temporomandibular joint disorder and craniomandibular disorder as part of a policy's basic coverage, in lieu of offering optional coverage.
