(This amendment restores funding for Medicaid reimbursement of hospitals. The introduced budget proposed to reduce reimbursement from 87 percent to 80 percent of costs. Companion amendments in Item 325 redistribute and expand Medicaid cost containment actions to a broader range of Medicaid providers: managed care organizations, pharmacies, pharmaceuticals, nursing homes, and hospitals.)
