SENATE HEALTH COMMITTEE
ASSEMBLY, No. 2113
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: MARCH 20, 1997
The Senate Health Committee reports favorably Assembly Bill No. 2113.
This bill changes the term "invalid coach service" to "mobility assistance vehicle service" under the Medicaid program, which covers this form of nonemergency health care transportation provided to Medicaid recipients pursuant to P.L.1981, c.134 (C.30:4D-6.2 et seq.). The new term provides a better description of the nature of this service and deletes any reference to a person's disability.
This bill is identical to Senate Bill No. 1337 (Sacco), which was also reported favorably by the committee on this date.
