    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 5-2.07 as follows:
    (305 ILCS 5/5-2.07)
    Sec. 5-2.07. Use of Medicaid spend-down. No later than
July 1, 2007, subject to federal approval of a State Medicaid
Plan amendment, which shall be sought by the Department of
Healthcare and Family Services or its successor agency,
persons described in item 2(a) of Section 5-2, who fail to
qualify for basic maintenance under Article III of this Code
on the basis of need because of excess income or assets, or
both, may establish eligibility for medical assistance by
paying the amount of their monthly spend-down under this
Article (as described in 42 CFR 435.831) to the Department of
Healthcare and Family Services or its successor agency or by
having a third party pay that amount to the Department on their
behalf. A person who uses Medicaid spend-down to qualify for
medical assistance shall be provided up to 6 consecutive
months to submit and have medical receipts and bills processed
by the Department as evidence of payment of the person's
monthly spend-down amount before becoming ineligible for
medical assistance under this Section.
