Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Removes limitations on coverage for amino acid-based elemental formulas, which restricted coverage to individuals diagnosed with eosinophilic disorders and short bowel syndrome. Provides that group or individual major medical accident and health insurance policies or managed care plans amended, delivered, issued, or renewed after the effective date of the Act must provide coverage and reimbursement for enteral feeding services and related medical supplies, including disposable supplies, when a physician licensed to practice medicine in all of its branches determines that enteral feeding is medically necessary and has prescribed enteral feeding for a patient. Defines enteral feeding to mean delivery of nutrients directly into the stomach, duodenum, or jejunum.
