Section 22-6-191

Legislative intent.

The intent of this article is to allow the only PACE provider in the State of Alabama to continue to provide services to nursing home eligible patients as the PACE program provides treatment to patients for fewer federal and state taxpayer dollars than other programs existing in the state. The Legislature declares that this article is broad-based in nature as the assessment herein is imposed on all health care or services in the class of providers and is uniformly imposed across all providers. The Legislature further declares that the entire PACE industry in Alabama exists only in Class 2 municipalities. The Legislature further recognizes that a Class 2 municipality bill is a general bill under the Alabama Constitution.
