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.

guardian, if applicable, may change his or her home and community-based services, including his or her participation in this program, including requesting alternate placement when the wants or needs of the individual, as reflected in the individual's personal plan, would be better served in another setting along the full spectrum of care. If an individual, his or her guardian, if applicable, or family caregivers, in conjunction with the independent service coordination agency, the provider, and clinical staff, believe the individual's wants or needs, as reflected in the individual's personal plan, would be better served in an alternate setting along the full spectrum of care, those opportunities shall be discussed as they are identified. The request may be made at any point during the period specified in paragraph (1) or at the conclusion of that period, when assessing whether continued participation in the program would be appropriate for the individual.
