ICCAP advocates for children, adolescent, families, and members. Our focus is on children's mental health and the implementation of parity as well as preventing psychologists efforts to get prescribing privileges.
 
UPDATE: Bill HB549-IL (Managed Care Act-Step Therapy) passed on August 12, 2016. This bill addressed the problems with prior authorization that concerns multiple step drug trials before using doctor recommended medication, retrying old drugs because the patient has changed insurers and changing drugs that are now on the revised formulary.

Effective Date: January 1, 2018
