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 5/5-2.03

    (305 ILCS 5/5-2.03)
    Sec. 5-2.03. Presumptive eligibility. Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly and except where federal law requires presumptive eligibility, no adult may be presumed eligible for medical assistance under this Code and the Department may not cover any service rendered to an adult unless the adult has completed an application for benefits, all required verifications have been received, and the Department or its designee has found the adult eligible for the date on which that service was provided. Nothing in this Section shall apply to pregnant women or to persons enrolled under the medical assistance program due to expansions approved by the federal government that are financed entirely by units of local government and federal matching funds.
