provides coverage in this state for medical, surgical, chiropractic, physical therapy, speech
pathology, audiology, professional mental health, dental, hospital, or optometric expenses,
whether such coverage is by direct payment, reimbursement, or otherwise, must be presumed

subdivisions thereof, or the federal government.

which permits or qualifies it to provide those services.
Any person or entity which is unable to show that it is subject to the jurisdiction of another
