STAND. COM. REP. NO.2079
RE: S.B. No. 2692
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Health and Human Services, to which was referred S.B. No. 2692 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MEDICAL SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to require the use of the National Medical Support Notice form whenever a parent is ordered to provide medical insurance coverage for a child.
Your Committee heard testimony in support of the measure from the Office of the Attorney General.
Your Committee finds that the use of the National Medical Support Notice form is a federally-mandated requirement under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. This measure provides the authority for the Child Support Enforcement Agency to utilize this form in order to comply with the federal requirements and remain eligible to receive federal welfare funding and federal funding of the child support enforcement programs.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health and Human Services that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2692 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health and Human Services,
DAVID MATSUURA, Chair
