(b)

Is eligible for medical assistance in the other state; and

(c)

Files with the department a certified copy of the adoption assistance agreement obtained from the adoption assistance state.

(2)

The department shall consider the holder of a medical assistance identification document issued under this section to be the same as a holder of any other medical assistance identification document issued under other laws of this state. The department shall process and make payment on claims on behalf of the holder in the same manner and subject to the same conditions and procedures as for other recipients of medical assistance.

(3)

The department shall provide coverage and benefits for a child who is in another state and is covered by an adoption assistance agreement made by the department if the coverage or benefits are not provided by the residence state. The adoptive parent may submit to the department evidence of payment for services or benefit amounts that are not payable in the residence state. The department shall reimburse the adoptive parent for services and benefit amounts covered by this state’s medical assistance program. However, the department may not reimburse the adoptive parent for services or benefit amounts covered under any insurance or other third-party medical contract or arrangement held by the child or the adoptive parent. The additional services and benefit amounts provided under this subsection are for services for which there is no federal contribution toward the cost of the services, or for services for which there is a federal contribution toward the cost of the services but the services are not provided by the residence state.

(4)

(a) For purposes of subsection (1) of this section, the department by rule may require the adoptive parents to show, at least annually, that the adoption assistance agreement is in force.

(b)

The department shall adopt rules implementing subsection (3) of this section. The department shall include in the rules procedures for obtaining prior approval for services in those instances when approval is required for the assistance.

(5)

A person who submits a false, misleading or fraudulent claim for payment or reimbursement for services or benefits under this section, or makes a false, misleading or fraudulent statement in connection therewith, commits a Class C felony if the person knows or should know that the claim or statement is false, misleading or fraudulent.
