2015 WISCONSIN ACT 188
An Act to repeal 146.89 (3) (i); and to amend 51.422 (2), 146.89 (2) (br) and 255.06 (2) (d) (title) of the statutes; relating to: volunteer health care provider program, changing reference to residential treatment programs, and eliminating a grammatical error in the Well-Woman Program provision on specialized training for rural colposcopic examinations (suggested as remedial legislation by the Department of Health Services).
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
Law Revision Committee prefatory note: This bill is a remedial legislation proposal, requested by the Department of Health Services and introduced by the Law Revision Committee under s. 13.83 (1) (c) 4. and 5., stats. After careful consideration of the various provisions of the bill, the Law Revision Committee has determined that this bill makes minor substantive changes in the statutes, and that these changes are desirable as a matter of public policy.
51.422 (2) of the statutes is amended to read:
51.422 (2) Program components. An opioid treatment program created under this section shall offer an assessment to individuals in need of service to determine what type of treatment is needed. The program shall transition individuals to a licensed certified residential program, if that level of treatment is necessary. The program shall provide counseling, medication-assisted treatment, including both long-acting opioid antagonist and partial agonist medications that have been approved by the federal food and drug administration, and abstinence-based treatment. The program shall transition individuals who have completed treatment to county-based or private post-treatment care.
Note: This provision changes "licensed" to "certified" to reflect the type of approval the Department of Health Services gives to residential programs under ch. DHS 75, Wis. Adm. Code.
146.89 (2) (br) of the statutes is amended to read:
146.89 (2) (br) The department of administration may not disapprove the application solely on the basis that the nonprofit agency is organized under the laws of a state other than this state.
This provision removes a reference created in 2013 Wisconsin Act 241
to the Department of Administration as the administering agency of the Volunteer Health Care Provider Program.
146.89 (3) (i) of the statutes is repealed.
Note: This provision removes a requirement that a nonprofit agency prepare and submit to the Department of Administration an annual report that includes the types and number of health care services provided by the nonprofit agency under the Volunteer Health Care Provider Program.
255.06 (2) (d) (title) of the statutes is amended to read:
255.06 (2) (d) (title) Specialized training
to for rural colposcopic examinations and activities.
Note: This bill removes the extraneous preposition "to" from the title of the statute relating to specialized training for rural colposcopic examinations and activities in the Well-Woman Program.
