(This amendment defers funding to change the payment adjustment factor applied to reimbursements for Type 2 hospitals. The introduced budget would have changed the payment adjustment factor from about 75 percent to 76 percent of allowable costs. This amendment maintains the reimbursement policy adopted by the 2004 General Assembly that increases the payment adjustment factor from 71 to 75 percent in fiscal year 2006 for Type 2 hospitals.)
