68.6 Distributions from the Health Care Initiatives Pool for Poison Control Center Operations.

(a) The monies available for distribution from the Health Care Initiatives (HCI) Pool for poison control center operations shall be distributed on a semi-annual basis in accordance with the methodology below:

(1) Population density by county, as established by the latest available decennial census data for New York State (NYS) as determined by the U.S. Census Bureau, shall be the basis for allocating available HCI Pool monies for distribution to the regional poison control centers.

(2) Population density applicable to the total county geographic area served by each regional poison control center shall be determined and the center's percentage to total NYS population density shall be calculated.

(3) Available HCI Pool monies shall be distributed proportionally to each regional poison control center based on the center's percentage population density served to total NYS population density.

(b) The Commissioner shall consider only those applications for prospective revisions of the projected pool distributions which are in writing and are based on errors, whether mathematical or clerical, made by the department in the pool distribution calculation process. Applications made pursuant to this subdivision must be submitted within thirty days of receipt of notice of the projected pool distribution for the calendar year.
