Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes Other Special Revenue Funds allocations to the Department of Health and Human Services of $49,578 in fiscal year 2015-16 and $68,132 in fiscal year 2016-17 for one Office Associate II position to handle additional clerical duties expected with a change on the limit of patients a caregiver can serve. A caregiver pays an annual application fee of $260 per patient served. As the number of patients a caregiver can serve increases, the revenue received will also increase. The department does not have enough information at this time to determine how many additional patients will be served. However, this fiscal note assumes that between the existing revenues and the increased revenues from the bill, sufficient revenue will be available to cover the increased allocations.
