Public Act 101-0625
 
SB0667 EnrolledLRB101 04428 SMS 49436 b

    AN ACT concerning regulation.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 1. Findings. The General Assembly finds and
declares that:
        (1) Diabetes affects approximately 1,300,000 adults in
    Illinois (12.5% of the population);
        (2) Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death
    nationally and in Illinois;
        (3) The toll on the U.S. economy has increased by more
    than 40% since 2007, costing the country $245,000,000,000
    in 2012;
        (4) When someone has diabetes, the body either does not
    make enough insulin or is unable to use its own insulin,
    causing glucose levels to rise higher than normal in the
    blood;
        (5) For people with Type 1 diabetes, near-constant
    self-management of glucose levels is essential to prevent
    life-threatening complications;
        (6) From 2012 to 2016, the average price of insulin
    increased from 13 cents per unit to 25 cents per unit;
    therefore,
    It is necessary for the State to enact laws to reduce the
costs for Illinoisans with diabetes and increase their access
to life-saving and life-sustaining insulin.

    (a) A group policy of accident and health insurance that is
amended, delivered, issued, or renewed after the effective date
of this amendatory Act of 1998 shall provide coverage for
outpatient self-management training and education, equipment,

    means (A) the individual's primary care physician licensed

    certified, registered, or licensed health care
    professional with expertise in diabetes management to whom

    (c) Coverage under this Section for diabetes
self-management training, including medical nutrition
education, shall be limited to the following:
        (1) Up to 3 medically necessary visits to a qualified
    provider upon initial diagnosis of diabetes by the

    individual, up to 3 medically necessary visits to a
    qualified provider within one year after that effective
    date.
        (2) Up to 2 medically necessary visits to a qualified
    provider upon a determination by a patient's physician that

    condition has occurred. A "significant change" in

required for additional visits beyond those specified in items
(1) and (2) of this subsection.
    Coverage under this subsection (c) for diabetes
self-management training shall be subject to the same
deductible, co-payment, and co-insurance provisions that apply

same type of provider.
    (d) Coverage shall be provided for the following equipment
when medically necessary and prescribed by a physician licensed
to practice medicine in all of its branches. Coverage for the

medical equipment benefit.
    (e) Coverage shall be provided for the following
pharmaceuticals and supplies when medically necessary and
prescribed by a physician licensed to practice medicine in all
of its branches. Coverage for the following items shall be
subject to the same coverage, deductible, co-payment, and

        (2) syringes and needles;
        (3) test strips for glucose monitors;
        (4) FDA approved oral agents used to control blood

by a physician or by a physician to whom a physician has
referred the patient. Coverage for regular foot care exams

the quantity or type of covered prescription insulin drug used
to fill the insured's prescription.
    (d) Nothing in this Section prevents an insurer from

competition.

        (ii) the amount of the refund or additional premium
    shall not exceed 20% of the Health Maintenance

    Health Maintenance Organization's administrative and
    marketing expenses, but shall not include any refund to be
    made or additional premium to be paid pursuant to this
    subsection (f)). The Health Maintenance Organization and
    the group or enrollment unit may agree that the profitable
    or unprofitable experience may be calculated taking into

describing the possibility of a refund or additional premium,
and upon request of any group or enrollment unit, provide to
