What is SASETA?

The Sexual Assault Survivors Emergency Treatment Act (410 ILCS 70/1) is an Illinois law that governs the healthcare that hospitals are required to provide to sexual assault survivors, establishes a statewide forensic evidence collection system, and creates a reimbursement program for the cost of care and evidence collection for victims who are not covered by private insurance or Medicaid.
