"UUU.  Out of this appropriation, $8,768,125 from the general fund and $8,813,839 from nongeneral funds the second year shall be provided to nursing facilities for fiscal year 2004 direct care inflation adjustments.  The inflation adjustment provided to nursing facilities effective on July 1, 2003, shall be calculated in a manner to ensure that the increase in payments does not exceed the funding provided in this amendment."

(This amendment restores 100 percent of the reduction in funding to nursing facilities for an inflation adjustment for direct care services in fiscal year 2004. House Bill 1400, as introduced, eliminated this adjustment for fiscal year 2004. This amendment provides an inflation adjustment of approximately six percent.)
