DIGEST OF HB1226 (Updated February 2, 2010 6:47 pm - DI 84)


Health and Medicaid fraud matters. Establishes procedures for the attorney general to seize, secure, store, and destroy abandoned or at risk health records and other records containing personally identifying information. Creates a health records and personal identifying information protection trust fund to pay for costs associated with securing and maintaining the records. Allows the office of the secretary of family and social services to exclude specified persons who engage in fraud or abuse from participating in state administered health care programs. Requires the office of the secretary to maintain a list of persons excluded from participating in state administered health care programs and provide that list to specified persons. Requires certain Medicaid providers or applicants to submit a surety bond to the office of Medicaid policy and planning to be used for specified purposes before the provider may receive reimbursement. Prohibits health professions licensing boards from accepting the surrender of a license if the attorney general files an administrative action against the practitioner and opposes the surrender. Provides for automatic revocation of a controlled substances advisory commission permit if a physician's license is revoked. (Current law requires a separate administrative process to take place if a physician's license is revoked.) Provides that a pharmacist, pharmacy technician, or person authorized by a pharmacist to dispense a controlled substance may not dispense a controlled substance to a person who is not personally known to the pharmacist, pharmacy technician, or person authorized by a pharmacist to dispense a controlled substance unless the person taking possession of the controlled substance provides documented proof of the person's identification to the pharmacist, pharmacy technician, or person authorized by a pharmacist to dispense a controlled substance.
