|Subject:||Medical Assistance/Child Support Legislation (Former HB 114)|
|In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation (Former HB 114) 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 unanimously passed out of the House Health Committee. The House passed former HB 114 by a vote of 191-0.
Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.
