Bill Caption

Relating to a study on the benefits of prenatal surgical procedures to treat birth defects.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

The bill would require the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to conduct a study analyzing the difference of the average total cost to the Medicaid program, private health benefit plan coverage, and individuals and other payors between administering a prenatal surgical procedure and a postnatal procedure to treat a birth defect. HHSC would also be required to examine the post-surgical operation effects.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Requiring the aforementioned study neither abridges nor advances any of our liberty principles. We remain neutral on HB 606.
