    AN ACT concerning public aid.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Public Aid Code is amended by
changing Section 11-7 as follows:
    (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statement of reasons shall be sent whenever aid is withdrawn,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.
