Statute Update: Prohibition of Hospital “No-admit” lists

 Posted on February 21, 2019 in Uncategorized

The Illinois legislature passed a new law, effective January 1, 2018, which prohibits hospitals from maintaining a list of individuals who may not be admitted for treatment.  Supporters of the legislation urged its passing to ensure access to medical care within hospital systems regardless of ability to pay, prior medical/mental health history, or any other reason that warrants inclusion to a list to deny care.  The law does provide hospitals and medical staffs with flexibility to determine the appropriate treatment and setting for treatment for incoming patients.
