Current Bill Summary

SB 561 - Under this act, the Children's Division shall take physical custody of a child who is in the legal custody of the Division and who is hospitalized but no longer in need of medical care. If the Division fails to take physical custody of the child, then the Division shall reimburse the hospital at the same rate the hospital would receive per day for an inpatient admission.

Additionally, if the Division requests transportation of a child to an emergency, the hospital to which the child is transported or any subsequent psychiatric hospital to which the child is transferred shall be allowed to administer emergency psychiatric treatment.

This act is substantially similar to HB 1147 (2021).
