Short description: 
CHLD HLTH INS-MEDCAID-ELIGIBLE                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the  Children's  Health  Insurance  Program  Act  and  the      
   Illinois  Public Aid Code.  Provides that in making a determination of      
   a child's income  eligibility  for  the  children's  health  insurance      
   program  or  Medicaid,  the  Department  of  Public Aid must accept an      
   applicant's attestation that a child satisfies  the  household  income      
   requirement  but  may  later  verify  the  child's income eligibility.      
   Provides  that  the  Department  may  not  determine  that  a  child's      
   household income is unverifiable for the sole reason that an applicant      
   is unable  to  provide  pay  stubs  or  other  statements  of  income.      
   Requires  the Department to encourage and facilitate the enrollment of      
   children in the children's health insurance program and Medicaid  with      
   their  enrollment  in  the  National  School Lunch Program and similar      
   programs so that, to the extent possible, a family does  not  have  to      
   submit  information needed to determine eligibility for these programs      
   more than once.  Repeals  the  provision  repealing    the  Children's      
   Health Insurance Program Act on July 1, 2002.  Effective immediately.
