IC 4-22-2.1-5 Statement Concerning Rules Affecting Small Businesses
The following section provides responses to the requirements outlined in IC 4-22-2.1-5:
1. An estimate of the number of small businesses, classified by industry sector, that will be subject to the proposed rule.
IC 5-28-2-6 defines a small business as a business entity that satisfies the following requirements:
(1) On at least fifty percent (50%) of the working days of the business entity occurring during the preceding calendar year, the business entity employed not more than one hundred fifty (150) employees.
(2) The majority of the employees of the business entity work in Indiana.
The Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) estimates that small businesses will incur no additional costs to comply with the proposed rule for Adult Mental Health Habilitation Services.
2. An estimate of the average annual reporting, record keeping, and other administrative costs that small business will incur to comply with the proposed rule.
The OMPP estimates that small businesses will incur minimal additional costs, not to exceed $500,000, to comply with the proposed rule, which does not meet the standard for impact.
3. An estimate of the total annual economic impact that compliance will have on small businesses subject to the rule.
Some providers may have minimal additional costs to update billing codes in their billing system and incur minimal staff costs for time spent completing the Adult Mental Health Habilitation Services referral form. It is anticipated these additional costs would be well under $500,000.
4. A statement justifying any requirement or cost that is imposed by the proposed rule and not expressly required by law. The statement must reference any data, studies, or analyses relied upon by the agency in determining imposition of the requirement or cost is necessary.
The proposed rule imposes no additional cost or requirements on small businesses.
5. Any regulatory flexibility analysis that considers any less intrusive or less costly alternative methods of achieving the same purpose.
Because small business is not impacted by this rule, completing a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.
