Article - Transportation
(a) (1) The Administration shall make available to opioid treatment programs monthly transit passes that:
(i) Are for use by patients of opioid treatment programs who qualify for the Administration’s Disabled Reduced Fare Program; and
(ii) May be issued to patients on site at opioid treatment programs by opioid treatment program staff.
(2) The transit passes issued under paragraph (1) of this subsection shall be made available at a reduced price that reflects the price of a monthly pass issued under the Disabled Reduced Fare Program as of October 1, 2020, less any cost savings to the Administration that result from having participating opioid treatment programs issuing transit passes directly to patients.
(b) The Administration shall adopt regulations to establish the process by which participating opioid treatment programs may issue transit passes under this section.
(c) On or before December 1, 2021, and on or before December 1 each year thereafter, the Administration, in consultation with participating opioid treatment program providers, shall submit a report to the Governor and, in accordance with § 2–1257 of the State Government Article, the General Assembly on the status of the implementation of the requirements under this section.
