  • Volunteer License Bill Moving in Right Direction

    An ISMS initiative (H.B. 4593), already passed by the Illinois House, cleared the Senate Licensed Activities and Pensions Committee last week and is now on the Senate floor waiting final debate.

    This bill would make it possible for retired health care professionals to apply for a category of license allowing for limited practice for uncompensated care in free medical and public health clinics.  

    In an agreed amendment with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, the department would issue the first 500 licenses for no fee (a small fee would apply to subsequent licenses). This proposal applies to physicians, dentists, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants and nurses, who would be issued licenses consistent with the terms and conditions of their existing licensure acts.  

    ISMS will keep you informed as the legislative session continues.
