(This amendment adds $100,000 the second year from the general fund for the fiscal impact of House Bill 2248, which requires providers of treatment for substance use disorder who administer methadone or opioid replacements as treatments to utilize biometric certification to verify the identity of the clinician and patient. Biometric certification includes iris scans of patients and either iris scans or two-finger fingerprint scans of clinicians. The bill requires the Board of Pharmacy to establish a statewide data repository for the storage of records of every transaction involving the administration of methadone or opioid replacements to a patient, with such records being held for no fewer than 10 years.)
