  ordered  printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on
  Crime Victims, Crime and Correction

AN ACT to amend the correction law  and  the  social  services  law,  in
  relation  to  the  development and implementation of automated payment
  detection, prevention and recovery solutions  to  reduce  correctional
  healthcare  overpayments, and to require that private health insurance
  providers and Medicaid are billed for eligible  inpatient hospital and
  professional services

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.  Other states have saved millions of
dollars by implementing solutions to eliminate and recover  correctional
healthcare  overpayments  and  significantly  have  reduced correctional
healthcare costs by billing private health insurance providers and Medi-
caid for eligible inpatient healthcare costs. New York  can  benefit  by
implementing  similar  measures.  It is the intent of the legislature to
implement automated payment detection, prevention and recovery solutions
to reduce correctional  healthcare  overpayments,  and  to  ensure  that
private  insurance  companies and Medicaid are billed for eligible inpa-
tient hospital and professional services.
  S 2. The correction law is amended by adding a new  section  140-a  to
read as follows:
  S  140-A.    HEALTHCARE PAYMENTS; BILLING PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE AND
MEDICAID. 1. UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, THE  PROVISIONS  OF  THIS  SECTION
APPLY  TO  ALL  STATE  CORRECTIONAL  HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS AND SERVICES AND
STATE CONTRACTED MANAGED CORRECTIONAL HEALTHCARE SERVICES.
  2.  THE  DEPARTMENT  SHALL  IMPLEMENT  AUTOMATED  PAYMENT   DETECTION,
PREVENTION, AND RECOVERY PROCEDURES TO ENSURE THAT PRIVATE HEALTH INSUR-
ANCE  OR  MEDICAID IS BILLED FOR ELIGIBLE INPATIENT HOSPITAL AND PROFES-
SIONAL HEALTHCARE SERVICES.  THESE PROCEDURES MUST INCLUDE, BUT ARE  NOT
