MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 7, 2013 03:57 PM
From: Representative Matthew E. Baker
To: All House members
Subject: Medical Assistance/child support legislation (Former HB 723)
 
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation (former HB 723) to require parents to support their children. I know this sounds like something that should already be in law, but believe it or not, we need a bill to require it.

Currently, the welfare code is silent on the subject of medical support for children receiving Medical Assistance. My bill will require the non-custodial parent of children for whom Medical Assistance is sought to enroll their children in their own health insurance plans before the Commonwealth would pay for medical care for them. The Medical Assistance program would be the payer of last resort in these instances.
