Restoring the Partnership for County Health Care Costs Act of 2019

I write to ask for your support for the Restoring the Partnership for County Health Care Costs Act of 2019.  This bill requires that individuals who receive Medicare, Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and/or Supplementary Security
Income (SSI) benefits, and are subsequently incarcerated pending disposition of their charges, maintain those benefits until they are convicted of a crime. Furthermore, the bill eliminates the current mandatory 30 day delay in reinstating Medicaid mental health
