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.

However, if the administrator of a program is not notified at least 45 days prior to the effective date of such cancellation, the administrator shall notify all pharmacies enrolled in the program of the cancellation as soon as practicable after having received notice.
    (b) When a program is terminated, all persons enrolled therein shall be so notified, and the employer shall make every reasonable effort to gain possession of any plan identification cards in such persons' possession.
    (c) Any person who intentionally uses a program identification card to obtain services from a pharmacy after having received notice of the cancellation of his benefits shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor. Persons shall be liable to the program administrator for all monies paid by the program administrator for any services received pursuant to any improper use of the identification card.
