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 5/5-48

    (305 ILCS 5/5-48)
    Sec. 5-48. Increasing behavioral health service capacity in federally qualified health centers. The Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall develop policies and procedures with the goal of increasing the capacity of behavioral health services provided by federally qualified health centers as defined in Section 1905(l)(2)(B) of the federal Social Security Act. Subject to federal approval, the Department shall develop, no later than January 1, 2024, billing policies that provide reimbursement to federally qualified health centers for services rendered by graduate-level, sub-clinical behavioral health professionals who deliver care under the supervision of a fully licensed behavioral health clinician who is licensed as a clinical social worker, clinical professional counselor, marriage and family therapist, or clinical psychologist.
    To be eligible for reimbursement as provided for in this Section, a graduate-level, sub-clinical professional must meet the educational requirements set forth by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for licensed clinical social workers, licensed clinical professional counselors, licensed marriage and family therapists, or licensed clinical psychologists. An individual seeking to fulfill post-degree experience requirements in order to qualify for licensing as a clinical social worker, clinical professional counselor, marriage and family therapist, or clinical psychologist shall also be eligible for reimbursement under this Section so long as the individual is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations regarding supervision, including, but not limited to, the requirement that the supervised experience be under the order, control, and full professional responsibility of the individual's supervisor or that the individual is designated by a title that clearly indicates training status.
    The Department shall work with a trade association representing a majority of federally qualified health centers operating in Illinois to develop the policies and procedures required under this Section.
