Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the "Public Assistance Fraud" Article of  the  Public  Aid      
   Code.   Makes  it  unlawful  to  do any of the following:  defraud any      
   State or federally funded or mandated health plan in  connection  with      
   the  delivery  of  or  payment  for  health care benefits; directly or      
   indirectly give or offer anything of value to a health  care  official      
   with the intent to influence or reward any act or decision of a health      
   care  official;  falsify  or  conceal  a material fact or make a false      
   statement or representation in connection with the provision of health      
   care; or engage in any  unfair  or  deceptive  marketing  practice  in      
   connection  with  providing  any  health  care service or health plan.

        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that offering a benefit to a person as an inducement  to      
   select    or  to  refrain  from selecting a health plan or health care      
   service or provider is not an unfair or deceptive  marketing  practice      
   if  the  benefit  is permitted by  the Department of Public Aid or the      
   Department of Human Services.                                               
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        In the Section added to the Public Aid  Code  concerning  managed      
   health care fraud, provides that "health plan" includes (i) any health      
   care    reimbursement  plan sponsored wholly or partially by the State      
   (rather than  any government-sponsored health care reimbursement plan)      
   and (ii) any  insurance carrier or  other  entity  that  contracts  to      
   provide or provides goods  or services that are reimbursed by or are a      
   required  benefit  of  a  health    benefits  program funded wholly or      
   partially by the State (rather than that are  reimbursed by or  are  a      
   required  benefit  of  a  State  or  federally funded health  benefits      
   program).   In provisions concerning bribery and graft  in  connection      
   with   health   care,   creates   an  exception  for  certain  actions      
   "specifically allowed by law".  In provisions concerning the  elements      
   of  the  offense  of unfair or deceptive marketing practices, includes      
   acting knowingly and willfully as an element of the offense.
