Rep. Haas Passes Bill to Allow Coverage on Mobile Integrated Health Care Services

SPRINGFIELD – Earlier this week, State Representative Jackie Haas (R-Kankakee) passed Senate Bill 3599 through the House with a unanimous vote of 114-0. In response to the passage, Rep. Haas released the following statement.

“The passage of House Bill 3599 is a huge win for Illinoisans, as this will make community-based mobile integrated health care services available when medically necessary,” said Rep. Haas. “This may be offered as an alternative to the more costly utilization of emergency medical services accessed through 911 and emergency departments. This bill allows for the creation of billing codes that will permit insurance and managed care companies to fund the services provided by mobile integrated health care units.”

Mobile integrated health care services are provided on-site by emergency medical services personnel. This model acts as an alternative to bringing patients with chronic medical conditions to overcrowded emergency departments by allowing care to be administered outside of a hospital environment. 

Rep. Haas concluded, “This bill saves time and money for patients and healthcare workers. I appreciate the continued bipartisan support for this bill and look forward to finding other solutions to some of the complex problems in our healthcare system.”
