"UUU.  Out of this appropriation, $4,334,052 from the general fund and $4,356,647 from nongeneral funds shall be provided to inpatient hospitals for fiscal year 2004 for inflation adjustments.  The inflation adjustment provided to inpatient hospitals 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 funding to inpatient hospitals for an inflation adjustment in fiscal year 2004 which was eliminated in House Bill 1400, as introduced. This amendment provides an inflation adjustment of approximately four percent.)
