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 5/5F-20

    (305 ILCS 5/5F-20)
    Sec. 5F-20. Network adequacy.
    (a) Every managed care organization shall allow every nursing home in its service area an opportunity to be a network contracted facility at the plan's standard terms, conditions, and rates. Either party may opt to limit the contract to existing residents only.
    (b) With the exception of subsection (c) of this Section, a managed care organization shall only terminate or refuse to renew a contract with a nursing home if the nursing home fails to meet quality standards if the following conditions are met:
        (1) the quality standards are made known to the
nursing home;
        (2) the quality standards can be objectively
measured through data;
        (3) the nursing home is measured on at least a
year's worth of performance;
        (4) a nursing home that the MCO has determined did
not meet a quality standard has the opportunity to contest that determination by challenging the accuracy or the measurement of the data through an arbitration process agreed to by contract; and
        (5) the Department may attempt to mediate a dispute
prior to arbitration.
    (c) A managed care organization may terminate or refuse to renew a contract with a nursing home for a material breach of the contract, including, but not limited to, failure to grant reasonable and timely access to the MCO's care coordinators, SNFists and other providers, termination from the Medicare or Medicaid program, or revocation of license.
