AN ACT TO IMPROVE DATA COLLECTION AND COST RECOVERY PRACTICES FOR HEALTH CARE SERVICES FOR SAFEKEEPERS, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE JOINT LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM EVALUATION COMMITTEE.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.
Amends GS 162-39 by deleting the proposed language that required the Department of Revenue to immediately pursue collection from the county of unpaid fees for services rendered under the statute that have remained unpaid for 120 or more days.
Amends proposed GS 148-19.3 to require, for county prisoners housed in the State prison system under safekeeping orders who receive health care services outside the prison, that the county sheriff be notified of the potential Medicaid eligibility of the safekeeper given data available to the Department of Public Safety instead of requiring the Department to determine the appropriateness of submitting a Medicaid application on behalf of the prisoner and submit the application when appropriate.
