"CCC.  Out of this appropriation, $5,417,565 from the general fund and $5,445,810 from nongeneral funds shall be provided to private inpatient hospitals for fiscal year 2004 for inflation adjustments.  The inflation adjustment provided to private 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 the funding to private 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 five percent. Public hospitals received an inflationary increase in the introduced budget and are not affected by this change.)
