Turn-around impacts health-related bills

The first major deadline of the 2017 legislative session has passed. "Turn-around" is the date by which most bills must be passed by their chamber of origin; tax and spending bills are exempted from the rule. Many health-related issues have been considered this year but if they are not listed below, they are unlikely to advance unless they are amended into other, related bills.

The following bills remain active:

  • House Bill 2027 related to billing for anatomic pathology (awaits action in the Senate)
  • House Bill 2030 allowing pharmacists to administer vaccinations to children aged 12 and up (awaits action in the Senate)
  • House Bill 2045 related to institutional licenses (awaits action in the Senate)
  • House Bill 2121 requiring physicians to participate in WebIZ (awaits action in the Senate)
  • House Bill 2180 increasing the MCO privilege fee (awaits action in House Appropriations Committee; has been exempted
  • House Bill 2205 requiring meningitis vaccinations (awaits action in the Senate)
  • House Bill 2217 allowing first responders and others to procure a supply of opioid antagonists (awaits action in the Senate)
  • Senate Bill 32 expands the medical student loan program and the bridging program to include additional slots and funding for psychiatry (awaits action in the House)
  • Senate Bill 69 related to KanCare compliance (awaits action by the full Senate; has been exempted)
  • Senate Bill 94 increases MCO privilege fee to restore Medicaid provider reimbursement cuts (awaits action by the full Senate; has been exempted)
