    AN ACT concerning State government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Custody Relinquishment Prevention Act is
amended by changing Section 15 as follows:
 
    (20 ILCS 540/15)
    Sec. 15. Interagency agreement.
    (a) In order to intercept and divert children and youth at
risk of custody relinquishment to the Department of Children
and Family Services, within 180 days after the effective date
of this Act, the Department of Children of Family Services,
the Department of Human Services, the Department of Healthcare
and Family Services, the Illinois State Board of Education,
the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Department of
Public Health shall enter into an interagency agreement for
the purpose of preventing children and youth who are not
otherwise abused or neglected from entering the custody or
guardianship of the Department of Children and Family Services
solely for purposes of receiving services for a serious mental
illness or serious emotional disturbance.
    The intergovernmental agreement shall require the agencies
listed in this Section to establish an interagency clinical
team to review cases of children and youth who are at risk of
relinquishment who are at a hospital or other similar
treatment facility, and to connect the child or youth and his
or her family with the appropriate services, treatment, and
support to stabilize the child or youth's serious mental
illness or serious emotional disturbance and prevent custody
relinquishment to the Department of Children and Family
Services.
    The interagency agreement, among other things, shall
address all of the following:
        (1) Requiring families with private health insurance
    to exhaust their private insurance coverage.
        (2) Establishing cost sharing for services received
    for families whose income exceeds the federal poverty
    level that would qualify them for Medicaid, based on the
    family's ability to pay.
        (3) For children or youth who are not otherwise
    Medicaid eligible, performing a crisis stabilization
    assessment and developing a care plan for the child or
    youth and the family with the goal of determining what
    services are necessary to (i) stabilize the child or youth
    and (ii) prevent custody relinquishment to the Department
    of Children and Family Services when there is no abuse or
    neglect.
        (4) Set criteria for short-term crisis stabilization
    services, including intensive community-based services or
    a short-term residential placement, as the child or
    youth's treatment plan is being developed.
    (b) The Department of Children and Family Services, the
Department of Human Services, the Department of Healthcare and
Family Services, the Illinois State Board of Education, the
Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Department of Public
Health shall enter into a 5-year extension of the interagency
agreement required by Public Act 98-808.
