Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement for Original Bill

Committee: Health and Human Services
Fiscal Note Required: Yes
Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Current biennium cost increase - General Fund
Current biennium cost increase - Federal Expenditures Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
The Department of Health and Human Services may experience an increase in General Fund and Federal Expenditures Fund Medicaid costs since federally qualified health centers are reimbursed at a rate significantly higher than methadone clinics.  It is likely that the additional cost to reimburse federally qualified health centers will exceed any possible transportation savings.
