Current Bill Summary

SB 779 - This act grants the Department of Social Services the authority to suspend, revoke, or cancel any contract or provider agreement or refuse to enter into a new contract or provider agreement with any provider when it has been determined that the provider, or any affiliate or associate thereof, committed fraud, abuse, or unethical behavior in another state's Medicaid program and was removed from or otherwise prohibited from being a provider in that state's program; provided, that such fraud, abuse, or unethical behavior, if it had occurred in this state, would be grounds for suspension, revocation, cancellation, or refusal to enter into a contract or provider agreement as a MO HealthNet provider.

This act is identical to a provision in SCS/HCS/HB 2012 (2022) and substantially similar to a provision in SS/SB 667 (2022).
