SB 456 - This act adds cognitive, emotional, mental, and developmental disabilities to the service program administered by the Children's Special Health Care Needs Service, and specifies that the purpose of such service includes provision of habilitative and rehabilitative services, and lifespan care.

This act also specifies when an individual is eligible to free health services, and provides that no third-party payer for health care services shall limit coverage or deny reimbursement for treatment of physical, cognitive, emotional, mental, or developmental disability where the disability requires the individual to receive care or assistance from another person at any age, and interferes with the individual's everyday functional activities.

This act is similar to HB 1011 (2017).
