Final Disposition Reimbursement Payment
Concerning the death reimbursement paid by an agency that provides public assistance for the final disposition of a deceased indigent person.
2019 Regular Session
Current law requires counties to give an indigent deceased person final disposition. The county may be reimbursed for this cost so long as the cost does not exceed $2,500, but if the cost exceeds $2,500, the county is not reimbursed. The bill:
- Raises this amount to $3,000; and
- Allows the county to be reimbursed, up to $3,000, when the cost exceeds $3,000.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
