House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: December 14, 2016 11:05 AM
From: Representative Matthew E. Baker
To: All House members
Subject: Medical Assistance/ Child Support Legislation (Former HB 875)
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation (former HB 875) amending the Human Services Code regarding medical support from noncustodial parents.

Currently, the Human Services Code is silent on the subject of medical support for children receiving Medical Assistance. My legislation will require the non-custodial parent of children for whom Medical Assistance is sought to enroll their children in their own health insurance plan before the Commonwealth would pay for medical care for them. This legislation is intended to ensure that Medical Assistance is the payer of last resort.

This legislation was passed by the House last session by a vote of 195-0. Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB114
