AN ACT concerning regulation.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
The Illinois Insurance Code is amended by
changing Section 356z.33 as follows:
(215 ILCS 5/356z.33)
Coverage for epinephrine injectors.
A group or individual policy of accident and health
insurance or a managed care plan that is amended, delivered,
issued, or renewed on or after January 1, 2020 (the effective
date of Public Act 101-281) shall provide coverage for
medically necessary epinephrine injectors for persons 18 years
of age or under. As used in this Section, "epinephrine
injector" has the meaning given to that term in Section 5 of
the Epinephrine Injector Act.
(b) An insurer that provides coverage for medically
necessary epinephrine injectors shall limit the total amount
that an insured is required to pay for a twin-pack of medically
necessary epinephrine injectors at an amount not to exceed
$60, regardless of the type of epinephrine injector.
(c) Nothing in this Section prevents an insurer from
reducing an insured's cost sharing by an amount greater than
the amount specified in subsection (b).
