Fiscal Note
Potential current biennium revenue decrease - Other Special Revenue Funds
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Removing retail pharmacies from the list of entities funding and reporting to the Maine Health Data Organization (MHDO) could reduce MHDO Other Special Revenue Funds revenue. The MHDO estimates revenue from retail pharmacies is expected to be $58,869 in FY 2011.  MHDO rules for determining assessments would effectively allow the MHDO to increase assessments paid by other health care payers and providers to offset this lost revenue.
