"N. Out of this appropriation, $600,000 the first year from the general fund is provided in recognition of unreimbursed indigent care provided by medical school faculty separate from the care provided by the medical center.  These funds are in partial support of the direct cost of the first-professional medical education program for Virginia students.  The cost study policies established in Item 175. A. shall apply to these patients and financial transactions.  However, the annual report required in Item 175. A. on financial activities and the qualification of patients shall be reported to the State Council of Higher Education and the Department of Planning and Budget.  The State Council and the Secretary of Education shall report to the Governor and General Assembly by November 15, 1998, on the implementation of this program and funding needs in subsequent years."

(This amendment provides funding to the University of Virginia Medical School that relates to unreimbursed care of indigent patients. A process for reviewing the cost of such care is established.)
