Fiscal Note Summary

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

    The purpose of this bill is to add language to West Virginia Code ยง60A-10-7 requiring the issuance of a lawful prescription for dispensing drug products containing as an active ingredient ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, phenylpropanolamine and other chemical precursors of methamphetamine.
    The Department of Health and Human Resources does not project any fiscal impact from the passage of the proposed legislation. Current Medicaid policy requires a prescription for any covered over-the-counter medication.
