    Title 10 

    Subtitle 01 PROCEDURES

    10.01.05 Board of Review Procedures

    Authority: Health-General Article, §§2-104(b)(1) and 2-207, Annotated Code of Maryland

    Notice of Proposed Action


    The Secretary of Health proposes to repeal in their entirety Regulations .01—.10 under COMAR 10.01.05 Board of Review Procedures.

    Statement of Purpose

    The purpose of this action is to repeal the regulatory chapter that implements procedures for the Board of Review within the Maryland Department of Health in accordance with Chapter 103, Acts of 2017.

    Comparison to Federal Standards

    There is no corresponding federal standard to this proposed action.

    Estimate of Economic Impact

    I. Summary of Economic Impact. Ch. 103, Acts of 2017 (H.B. 127), entitled “Department of Health and Mental Hygiene — Board of Review — Repeal” prohibits the Board of Review from accepting new cases beginning June 1, 2017. This analysis reflects that the Board continued to meet in June 2017 to resolve remaining cases; therefore, there is no impact in fiscal 2017. The bill repeals the Board on January 1, 2018.

    II. Types of Economic Impact.






    A. On issuing agency:



    B. On other State agencies:


    C. On local governments:




    Benefit (+)
    Cost (-)




    D. On regulated industries or trade groups:


    E. On other industries or trade groups:


    F. Direct and indirect effects on public:


    III. Assumptions. (Identified by Impact Letter and Number from Section II.)

    A. The budgeted cost for the Board in fiscal 2018 is $15,825. This includes per diems for Board members, court reporters, and printing costs. The Board is supported by one employee of the Office of Governmental Affairs within the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) and two employees of the Office of the Attorney General, who also have other responsibilities within MDH. These employees spend a minimal amount of time on Board activities. This analysis assumes that the Board continues to meet regularly until January 1, 2018, and that any staff positions associated with the Board are not eliminated but instead shift to other duties within MDH after the Board ceases operations. Therefore, general fund expenditures for MDH decrease by as much as $7,913 in fiscal 2018 and by about $15,825 annually thereafter.

    Economic Impact on Small Businesses

    The proposed action has minimal or no economic impact on small businesses.

    Impact on Individuals with Disabilities

    The proposed action has no impact on individuals with disabilities.
