Amend CSHB 2292 as follows:                                                  
	(1) On page 122, add new subsection (c) and renumber 
	"(c) The Health and Human Service Commission, or any health 
and human services agency, as defined by Section 531.001, 
Government Code, may deny medical assistance for an individual, to 
the extent allowed by federal law, who is eligible for financial 
assistance but to whom that assistance is not paid because of the 
individual's failure to cooperate.  Medical assistance to the 
person's family may not be denied for the individual's failure to 
cooperate.  This subsection prohibits the denial of medical 
assistance to persons receiving assistance under Chapter 31 under 
the age of 19, pregnant adults and any other person who may not be 
denied medical assistance under federal law.
