Current Bill Summary

SB 448 - This act modifies the definition of a "health benefit plan" to include public assistance programs when referring to the provision of health care to a child through a child support order. The court or Children's Division shall require the child to be covered by a health benefit plan in any IV-D case. The plan may be private whenever such a plan is available through a parent's employer or union. If a private plan is not available at a reasonable cost, the court may require a parent to otherwise provide coverage for the child.

This act is identical to provisions in the truly agreed to and finally passed CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 397 (2019).
