On Aug. 21, 2015, Gov. Rauner signed HB 3673 into law. This law amends the state benefit mandates pertaining to mammogram coverage by requiring a screening MRI, when medically necessary, for women 35 years of age or older who are at high risk for breast cancer. This provision became effective Aug. 21, 2015.
The law also provides additional access to breast imaging for clients of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services and stipulates a minimum reimbursement rate for providers who participate in the Department’s breast cancer treatment quality improvement program.
