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.

    (b) The Department shall appoint an individual or entity to serve as program manager or an alternative position to assess level-of-care and target-population criteria for the program. The Department shall ensure that the individual or entity meets the criteria for demonstrated expertise in pediatric palliative care that the Department, in consultation with interested stakeholders, may establish by rule. The process for review of referrals and enrollment of qualifying children shall not include unnecessary delays and shall reflect the fact that treatment of pain and other distressing symptoms represents an urgent need for children with a serious illness.
