Illinois law caps hospital fees for uninsured

AP/Chicago tribune, March 31, 2009
A new Illinois law that goes into effect April 1 will reduce what hospitals charge the uninsured and cap how much they can collect in payment. Under the law, hospital charges to the eligible uninsured can't exceed the cost of services plus 35%. It also caps at 25% of a patient's family income what hospitals can collect annually from the eligible uninsured.
