Current Bill Summary


HCS/SCS/SB 89 - This act modifies provisions relating to health care services.

HEALTH INFORMATION ORGANIZATIONS (Section 191.237)

A health information organization shall not restrict the exchange of state agency data or standards-based clinical summaries for patients for HIPAA allowable uses. Charges for such service shall not exceed the cost of actual technology connection or recurring maintenance.

NURSING HOME DISTRICTS (Sections 198.310 and 198.345)

This act allows nursing home districts to establish and maintain senior housing in any third or fourth classification county, rather than only in Ralls or Marion county. This act also provides for "the constitutionally required percentage" of the votes cast for a nursing home district local bond issue to pass rather than needing "two-thirds" of the votes cast.
