HB2474 by Guillen (Relating to the continuation of medical assistance for certain individuals.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require certain Medicaid recipients who made minor errors in renewal documentation to remain eligible for the program. According to the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), agency policies already accomplish this requirement; therefore, no significant fiscal impact is anticipated to implement the provisions of the bill.
The bill amends §32.0256(a) of Human Resources Code, which was added by House Bill 3292, Eighty-fifth Legislature, Regular Session. That bill only required HHSC to implement the provisions if a specific appropriation was received. According to HHSC, those provisions were not implemented. This analysis does not contemplate implementation of those requirements in §32.0256(a).
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
