Second Regular Session - 48th Legislature

The following changes were made as part of the FY 2009 budget bill passed during the 2008 Regular Legislative Session:

  1. SSDI-Temporary Medical Coverage suspended
  2. Adult dental benefit for ALTCS suspended
  3. KidsCare Parents now covered by permanent law

    Previously, the KidsCare parents program required reauthorization each year, causing speculation as to whether or not the parents of children enrolled in this cost sharing program, would continue to have health insurance. It is now written into law that KidsCare parents will continue to receive health care coverage.
