Relating to the licensing of satellite offices of outpatient chemical dependency care facilities.
According to the Legislative Budget Board, there would be a negative impact of ($84,000) through the biennium ending August 31, 2021.
HB 4298 would exempt from statutory provisions regulating chemical dependence treatment facilities a satellite office in which the person providing chemical dependency treatment services is operating under the supervision of a licensed facility, and the services delivered at the satellite site fall within the scope of that facility's license.
Texas Action supports HB 4298 because it reduces the regulatory burden on chemical dependency treatment sites that are rendering vital services to patients in rural counties that cannot afford to sustain an adequate number of licensed facilities.
