HF 2427 – Free Clinics access to SING;
HF 2445 – Mental health services billing and legal settlement terminology. 

 

FLOOR ACTION:

HF 2427 allows the Free Clinics of Iowa to electronically access the SING (background check) system. Currently, they can access the data but part of the background check process is on paper, which may stretch it out one to two months, sometimes causing the volunteer health care providers to lose volunteer providers.
[4/3: 48-0 (Excused: Dawson)]

 

HF 2445 allows bills for services provided at a state hospital to be billed directly to the Mental Health and Disability Services region instead of the county auditor. This will make the billing process more efficient. The bill also eliminates the outdated term “homemaker-home health aide.” An amendment adds language to this bill from SF 2369, relating county of residence.
[4/3: 48-0 (Excused: Dawson)]
