Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. In provisions concerning the Aid to the Aged, Blind or Disabled (AABD) program, provides that "disabled person", for purposes of qualifying for aid under the program, means a person who satisfies the disability standard used by the Social Security Administration (instead of a person age 18 or over who has a physical or mental impairment, disease, or loss which is of a permanent nature and which substantially impairs his ability to perform labor or services or to engage in useful occupations for which he is qualified, as determined by rule and regulation of the Department of Human Services). Sets forth procedures that the Department of Human Services must follow when it makes its own determinations of disability instead of accepting a determination made by the Social Security Administration. Provides that any division of the Department that provides or funds medical services that would be reimbursable under Medicaid may make disability determinations for purposes of determining eligibility for Medicaid, so long as the determinations are made using the rules, regulations, and other regulatory guidance materials that are relied upon by the Illinois Bureau of Disability Determination Services in the Department's Division of Rehabilitation Services in determining disability. Effective immediately.
