(This amendment includes $14.7 million in the second year from the general fund and an equal amount of federal Medicaid matching funds to pay for additional caseload growth expected from an increase in the monthly auxiliary grant payment from $1,048 to $1,500 per month proposed in an amendment to Item 337. Increasing the monthly auxiliary payment has the effect of increase Medicaid eligibility, because auxiliary grant recipients are automatically eligible for Medicaid. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
