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.

    (b) Nothing in this Section is intended to affect the rights of enrollees or relieve a health care plan of its responsibilities with respect to the provision of and coverage of emergency services or treatment of an emergency medical condition, as those terms are defined by this Act, and as those responsibilities and rights are otherwise provided under this Act, especially Section 65 of this Act.
