Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 1215 - This act provides that public entities which provide or pay for medical benefits for their employees and dependents under a plan of self-insurance shall have the same rights and obligations and be subject to the same remedies as the Department of Social Service and Medicaid, as provided in Section 208.215. That section allows the Department of Social Services to recover payments from third parties for the payment of medical bills. The act provides that the act shall not apply to limited benefit supplemental health insurance policies paid entirely by an employee of the public entity.
