        Amends  the  Illinois  Insurance  Code,  the  Health  Maintenance      
   Organization Act, the Limited Health Service Organization Act, and the      
   Voluntary Health Services Plans Act.  Requires  individual  and  group      
   accident  and  health  insurance  policies  and  coverage  by a health      
   maintenance organization or under a health  service  plan  to  include      
   coverage  for  nonprescription  enteral  formulas  and reduced-protein      
   foods that are necessary for the treatment or  management  of  certain      
   gastrointestinal  conditions  or  inherited  diseases  involving amino      
   acids.  Effective immediately.                                              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Insurance)

          In the opinion of DCCA, HB143 fails to create a State mandate        
          under the State Mandates Act.

        Limits the coverage to coverage for certain  metabolic  diseases.      
   Provides  coverage  for  prescription  enteral  and  oral formulas for      
   treatment of inherited diseases involving amino acids or other organic      
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                   
          HB143, as amended by H-am 1, fails to meet the definition of a       
          mandate under the State Mandates Act.                                
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Dept. of Insurance)                             
          No change from previous fiscal note.
