(This amendment provides $150,000 the first year from the general fund to allow the Department of Social Services to make changes to their electronic systems that would enable automatic re-enrollment in Medicaid for persons who have turned 18 while in the foster care system. The bill requires local departments of social services to ensure individuals are re-enrolled annually and requires the State Board of Social Services to promulgate regulations. This bill does not expand eligibility, as these individuals are already currently eligible.)
