New Laws Related to Medicine Now in Effect!

January 11, 2022

Illinois kicked off 2022 with more than 250 new laws! Our friends at the Illinois State Medical Society (ISMS) have compiled some of the notable health-related bills that took effect January 1.
 
In addition, while these two laws below took effect in 2021, they are very important to your practice and, therefore, have also been included:

  • Telehealth – House Bill 3308 / Public Act 102-0104 requires state-regulated private health insurers to cover telehealth visits and reimburse healthcare professionals at the same level they would if the treating healthcare professional saw the patient in person. 
 
  • Mental Health-Medical Necessity – House Bill 2595 / Public Act 102-0579 corrects current inequities in how health plans cover mental healthcare by establishing clear definitions and standards for when services and treatments qualify as medically necessary.
