(2) Beginning in 2014, provide to an independent, third party entity, no more than quarterly, a report listing its members. The third party entity shall match this report with one provided by the department of human services and provide the department of human services with third party liability information for medical assistance recipients. The department of human services shall determine the minimum data required to ensure the validity of matches, which may include name, date of birth, and social security number, as available.
