Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Children's health insurance. Establishes a program incorporating both Medicaid and the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) Plan in order to provide coordinated services to individuals defined as children in these programs. The Medicaid portion is named FAMIS Plus. The bill codifies practice by requiring the use of a single application to determine eligibility for both Medicaid coverage for children and FAMIS. Coverage for the mental health services currently provided for children enrolled in Medicaid is extended to individuals eligible for FAMIS. The bill reduces the waiting period from six to four months between the time that a child was covered by private health insurance and when eligibility for FAMIS can be established. The cost-sharing requirements are amended to clarify that the annual aggregate cost-sharing for all eligible children in a family between 100 percent and at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level will be limited to nominal copayments and the annual aggregate cost-sharing will not exceed 2.5 percent of the family's gross income. The nominal copayments for all eligible children in a family will not be less than those in effect on January 1, 2003. This bill is identical to SB 1218.
