On or before January 31, 2023, the bill requires the behavioral
health administration (BHA) to administer the county coroner and
mortuary mental health and wellness program (program). The program

coroner's staff, persons working for volunteer groups, funeral directors,
and mortuary science practitioners.

The bill requires each funeral home that employs a funeral director
or mortuary science practitioner to pay for the actual costs of providing

science practitioner requests to participate in the program and the funeral
director's or mortuary science practitioner's health insurance coverage
does not cover the costs of providing such services.
