(This amendment reduces the general fund appropriation to the Medicaid program by $750,000 and increases the appropriation from the Virginia Health Care Fund by $750,000 in anticipation of future Medicaid recoveries. It also adds four positions to assist efforts to reduce fraud, increase recoveries and related administrative activities. A companion amendment in Item 50 adds three FTE positions within the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit in the Office of the Attorney General to pursue additional fraud recoveries. Additional revenues to the Virginia Health Care Fund mean that general fund spending can be reduced by the same amount. Budget language is adjusted to reflect the additional appropriation from the fund the second year.)
