Current Bill Summary

HCS/SB 11 - Under current law, a donor may make an anatomical gift by authorizing a statement or symbol to be placed on the his or her driver's license or identification card and by filling out the form on the back of the card. This act requires such symbol or statement to be placed instead on the face of the card and permits a donor symbol sticker issued by the Department of Health and Senior Services to be placed on the back of the card. Additionally, the Department shall include on its website information about organ donation and a link for interested persons to register as an organ donor. If the donor does not have a donor symbol printed on his or her card, the Department shall mail the person a donor symbol sticker to be placed on the back of his or her card. All state agencies and departments may provide a link on their homepage directing the public to the organ donation information and registration page on the Department's website.

These provisions are identical to the perfected HB 450 (2019) and a provision in HCS/SB 282 (2019).

Under this act, any intermediate care facility or skilled nursing facility participating in MO HealthNet that incurs total capital expenditures in excess of $2,000 per bed shall be entitled to obtain a recalculation of its Medicaid per diem reimbursement rate based on its additional capital costs or all costs incurred during the facility fiscal year during which such capital expenditures were made.

This provision is identical to provisions in SS#2/HB 219 (2019), as amended, the truly agreed to and finally passed SB 514 (2019), SCS/HCS/HB 466 (2019), HB 600 (2019), SCS/HB 758 (2019), SCS/SB 82 (2019), SB 863 (2018), and SB 906 (2018) and similar to SB 818 (2018) and HB 2068 (2018).
