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.

305 ILCS 5/11-7

    (305 ILCS 5/11-7) (from Ch. 23, par. 11-7)
    Sec. 11-7. Notice of decisions to terminate aid - determination and notice of other medical assistance available - additional notice in cases of blind persons.     Whenever decision is made to terminate aid, the recipient shall be notified in writing within 10 days following the decision. The notice shall set out the specific reasons for the termination. In the case of a blind person, the notice and statement of reasons shall be sent whenever aid is withdrawn, suspended, revoked, or in any way changed. In the case of a recipient who resides at a long-term care facility, the notice and statement of reasons shall be sent to the recipient and to the long-term care facility.
    The notice shall include a statement defining the recipient's right to appeal.
    Before any notice to terminate medical assistance is issued, the Illinois Department shall determine whether the recipient is newly eligible for any other medical assistance offered by the Illinois Department. For all recipients found eligible as a result of this determination for other medical assistance offered by the Illinois Department, the Illinois Department shall provide other medical assistance effective as of the date of the termination of the prior medical assistance.
