Inmate’s liability for cost of psychological evaluation

2C:44-6.1. Inmate’s liability for cost of psychological evaluation

a. A defendant who is required to submit to a psychological evaluation pursuant to the provisions of N.J.S.2C:44-6 shall be liable for the cost of such evaluation. If the defendant is an enrollee or a covered person under a health insurance contract, policy or plan, the Administrative Office of the Courts shall file a claim with the health insurance contract, policy or plan for a reimbursement of the costs of the psychological evaluation. The claim shall be filed in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated pursuant to subsection b. of this section. The reimbursement authorized under this section shall be payable to the Administrative Office of the Courts and shall be used exclusively for the purpose of defraying the costs incurred for the psychological evaluation.

b. The Commissioner of the Department of Banking and Insurance, in accordance with the provisions of the “Administrative Procedure Act,” P.L.1968, c. 410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.), shall promulgate rules and regulations to effectuate the purposes of this section.

c. In the event that a defendant is not covered under a health insurance contract, policy or plan, or if the defendant’s insurance contract, policy or plan does not fully cover the costs of the psychological evaluation, a lien may be filed for any unpaid amounts due and payable on any and all property and income to which the defendant shall have or may acquire an interest. Any lien filed shall be in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated pursuant to subsection b. of this section.
