Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

215 ILCS 5/356d

    (215 ILCS 5/356d) (from Ch. 73, par. 968d)
    Sec. 356d. Conversion privileges for insured former spouses. (1) No policy of accident and health insurance providing coverage of hospital and/or medical expense on either an expense incurred basis or other than an expense incurred basis, which in addition to covering the insured also provides coverage to the spouse of the insured shall contain a provision for termination of coverage for a spouse covered under the policy solely as a result of a break in the marital relationship except by reason of an entry of a valid judgment of dissolution of marriage between the parties.
    (2) Every policy which contains a provision for termination of coverage of the spouse upon dissolution of marriage shall contain a provision to the effect that upon the entry of a valid judgment of dissolution of marriage between the insured parties the spouse whose marriage was dissolved shall be entitled to have issued to him or her, without evidence of insurability, upon application made to the company within 60 days following the entry of such judgment, and upon the payment of the appropriate premium, an individual policy of accident and health insurance. Such policy shall provide the coverage then being issued by the insurer which is most nearly similar to, but not greater than, such terminated coverages. Any and all probationary and/or waiting periods set forth in such policy shall be considered as being met to the extent coverage was in force under the prior policy.
    (3) The requirements of this Section shall apply to all policies delivered or issued for delivery on or after the 60th day following the effective date of this Section.
