Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that, for inpatient and outpatient services provided on or after January 1, 2006, in addition to rates paid for inpatient and outpatient hospital services, the Department shall pay each hospital (except for county providers and hospitals licensed under the University of Illinois Hospital Act) an amount as determined by rule of the Department, to reimburse the hospital for the reasonable costs of complying with the Language Assistance Services Act that are attributable to serving Medicaid recipients. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Department of Public Aid)
 House Bill 382 is effective on January 1, 2006 in the second half of FY06. Hospital reimbursement for reasonable costs complying with the Language Assistance Service Act is estimated at $39 million annually. This number is based on the assumption that 50% of the Hispanic and Asian population currently enrolled in Medicaid do not speak English. It is also assumed that 9% of the Medicaid population is deaf. Rates for language translation and deaf interpreter services were based on current hourly rates provided by IDHS. Language Assistance Services are eligible for Federal match.
