(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund and $50,000 from nongeneral funds the second year for additional eligibility determination costs in the Department of Social Services pursuant to House Bill 2002, introduced in the 2021 Session. The bill requires courts and the Department of Social Services to determine (i) whether a child meets Medicaid or Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) eligibility, or other government-sponsored health care coverage, and (ii) if such coverage is equivalent to any other coverage option that is available at a reasonable cost when determining health care coverage for a dependent child who is the subject of a child support order.
