DIGEST OF HB 1269 (Updated March 10, 2012 1:11 am - DI 104)

Health care compact. Establishes the health care compact. Requires the securing of the consent of the United States Congress. Specifies that the state legislature of each member state has the primary responsibility to regulate health care in the member state's jurisdiction. Allows the governor to enter into the compact on behalf of the state only after: (1) the budget committee reviews the compact and an implementation plan developed by the budget agency; (2) the budget agency prepares an implementation plan showing how Indiana will provide access to health care under the compact; and (3) the budget agency presents the plan to the health finance commission. Specifies that Indiana's participation in the compact does not include the administration of the federal Medicare program unless the General Assembly takes action that specifically authorizes the inclusion of Medicare in the compact. Allows member states of the compact to suspend all federal laws, regulations, and orders concerning health care that are inconsistent with the laws and regulations adopted by the member state under the compact, to the extent allowed under the Constitution of the United States and the constitution of the member state. Creates the interstate advisory health care commission consisting of individuals from member states.
