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.

305 ILCS 5/5-1.3

    (305 ILCS 5/5-1.3)
    Sec. 5-1.3. Payer of last resort. To the extent permissible under federal law, the State may pay for medical services only after payment from all other sources of payment have been exhausted, or after the Department has determined that pursuit of such payment is economically unfeasible. Applicants for, and recipients of, medical assistance under this Code shall disclose to the State all insurance coverage they have. To the extent permissible under federal law, the State shall require vendors of medical services to bill third-party payers for services that may be covered by those third-party payers prior to submission of a request for payment to the State. The Department shall, to the extent permissible under federal law, reject a request for payment of a medical service that should first have been submitted to a third-party payer.
