144.4812 COSTS OF CARE.
The costs incurred by the treatment facility and other providers of services to diagnose or
treat the carrier for tuberculosis must be borne by the carrier, the carrier's health plan, or public
programs. During the period of insurance coverage, a health plan may direct the implementation
of the care required by the health order or court order and shall pay at the contracted rate of
payment, which shall be considered payment in full. Inpatient hospital services required by the
health order or court order and covered by medical assistance or general assistance medical care
are not billable to any other governmental entity. If the carrier cannot pay for treatment, and the
carrier does not have public or private health insurance coverage, the carrier shall apply for
financial assistance with the aid of the county. For persons not otherwise eligible for public
assistance, the commissioner of human services shall determine what, if any, costs the carrier
shall pay. The commissioner of human services shall make payments at the general assistance
medical care rate, which will be considered payment in full.
