1 1 Section 1. Section 135H.3, Code 2009, is amended by adding

1 2 the following new unnumbered paragraph:

1 3 NEW UNNUMBERED PARAGRAPH. If a child is diagnosed with a

1 4 biologically based mental illness as defined in section

1 5 514C.22 and meets the medical assistance program criteria for

1 6 admission to a psychiatric medical institution for children,

1 7 the child shall be deemed to meet the acuity criteria for

1 8 inpatient benefits under a group policy, contract, or plan

1 9 providing for third=party payment or prepayment of health,

1 10 medical, and surgical coverage benefits issued by a carrier,

1 11 as defined in section 513B.2, or by an organized delivery

1 12 system authorized under 1993 Iowa Acts, chapter 158, that is

1 13 subject to section 514C.22. Such benefits shall not be

1 14 excluded or denied as care that is substantially custodial in

1 15 nature under section 514C.22, subsection 8, paragraph "b".

1 16 EXPLANATION

1 17 This bill relates to the criteria under the medical

1 18 assistance (Medicaid) program for a child's admission to a

1 19 psychiatric medical institution for children (PMIC). The bill

1 20 amends Code section 135H.3, relating to the nature of care in

1 21 a PMIC. The amendment provides that if a child requires

1 22 treatment for a biologically based mental illness and meets

1 23 the Medicaid program criteria for PMIC admission, the child

1 24 also meets the acuity criteria for inpatient benefits under

1 25 various types of health care coverage. The term "biologically

1 26 based mental illness" means the same as defined in Code

1 27 section 514C.22, relating to health and accident insurance

1 28 coverages for such illnesses. The bill specifies that the

1 29 inpatient benefits cannot be excluded or denied under that

1 30 Code section as care that is substantially custodial in

1 31 nature.
