(This amendment removes language from the introduced budget that changed the current methodology for reimbursing school districts for medical service costs pursuant to changes negotiated with the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Pending further negotiations with CMS on the future reimbursement methodology, the current reimbursement system will remain unchanged through the remainder of this fiscal year. Companion amendments in Items 144 and 3-1.01 eliminate language in the Department of Education and in Part 3 of this act which would implement the change to the current methodology.)
