Harris Roe V. Wade HARVEY - After the official decision by the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, State Senator Napoleon Harris, III (D-Harvey) released the following statement:

“Today, the Supreme Court has officially reversed nearly 50 years of judicial precedent. This is a blatant attack on basic human rights. What the court has done today ignores the opinions of the majority of Americans, as it helps states control women’s bodies, their choices, and their freedoms. This ruling will destroy both lives and livelihoods. Make no mistake: This is a war on women. This is a sad day in America.

“In anticipation of this day, we took action in Illinois, safeguarding the right of every woman in this state to make critical decisions about their own health and to decide for themselves – and their families – when to have children. As a state senator, I will continue to fight for the rights of all citizens in Illinois.”

Senator HarrisHARVEY – State Senator Napoleon Harris, III championed a law signed on Friday to ensure patients needing home health services receive adequate care.

“Home health services prevent older adults from experiencing discomfort through isolation and unfamiliar surroundings,” said Harris (D-Harvey). “By allowing our state’s older population to stay in the comfort of their own home, we are providing them with independence while still receiving the appropriate level of supportive care.”

House Bill 5585 will require all health insurance plans governed by state law issued on or after Jan. 1, 2024 to provide coverage for access to home health services for the duration of medically necessary care.

Home health services will be offered to any individual at their residence to treat significant illnesses or conditions diagnosed by a licensed physician.

House Bill 5585 was signed by the governor and is effective immediately.
