Abstract

This report finds that while utilization of the health benefits provided in the Act can, according to clinical studies, result in improved health outcomes, less is definitively known about the Act's cost-effectiveness.  The report recommends that the legislature repeal the sunset provision attached to the Act so that the Act will continue; and that the Department of Health conduct an evaluation of the Act's long-term effectiveness.  (Unless the sunset provision is repealed, the Act will terminate on June 30, 2001.)
