Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes a one-time General Fund appropriation to the Department of Health and Human Services of $29,509 in fiscal year 2019-20 for required technology changes to add a presumptive eligibility group when eligibility is determined by a provider other than a hospital. A one-time Other Special Revenue Funds allocation is also included for the federal match.
Any additional costs to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Corrections to enter into a memorandum of understanding to provide an incarcerated person with assistance in applying for benefits are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
