   20 ILCS 105/4.02          from Ch. 23, par. 6104.02                         

        Amends the Illinois Act on the Aging.  Subject to an increase  in      
   the rates paid to chore/housekeeping and homemaker vendors contracting      
   with the Department on Aging, requires that vendors pay an amount into      
   a  fund  to  provide  health care coverage for individuals who perform      
   more than 20 hours of chore/housekeeping  or  homemaker  services  per      
   week.    Provides  that  the  amount must equal $1.40 for each hour of      
   chore/housekeeping and homemaker services performed  pursuant  to  the      
   vendor's  contract  with  the  Department.   Provides that if a vendor      
   fails to pay a required amount into the fund, the vendor must pay that      
   amount to the Department.  Effective immediately.

          This legislation would cost the Department an estimated              
          $19,937,982 (14,241,415 homemaker service units provided by

   health  care  fund  must  be  made  out  of the 27% of the hourly rate      
   reserved for the vendor's administrative costs.  Requires coverage  of      
   individuals  who  perform  more than 80 hours of chore/housekeeping or      
   homemaker services per month (instead of 20 hours per week).  Requires

   provided  under Medicaid.  Requires coverage of an individual's spouse      
   and dependents.
