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 3rd edition.
Amends proposed GS 148-19.3 to eliminate the requirement that the county sheriff be notified by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) of the potential Medicaid eligibility of county prisoners housed in the State prison system under safekeeping orders who receive health care services outside the prison. Specifies that the requirement for health care providers to submit to the Inmate Medical Costs Management Plan all charges that are the responsibility of the transferring county for health care services provided to prisoners held under a safekeeping order applies to prisoners held under a safekeeping order pursuant to GS 162-39, as amended (previously did not include a statutory reference). Changes the proposed statute's title.
