(This amendment captures general fund savings due to a change in the reimbursement rate for the agency's prior authorization contract. The federal government will reimburse the state 75 percent of its costs rather than 50 percent assumed in the introduced budget. The savings are estimated at $1.2 million from the general fund each year, which will be offset by a like amount of federal funding.)
