Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The purpose of this bill is to require accident and sickness insurance providers and health maintenance organizations to cover certain Lyme disease treatments. The Department of Health and Human Resources does not anticipate any additional cost associated with this legislation as the long-term antibiotic treatment of Lyme disease is already covered by the Medicaid program.
