(This amendment provides $100,000 from the general fund in the second year for the Children with Special Health Care Needs Bleeding Disorders Program to improve access to health services for children with bleeding disorders. The program works with a national nonprofit organization to transition uninsured and Medicaid eligible patients with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders into private health insurance programs through premium assistance. Funding will be used to provide greater outreach, increase the number of qualified children with hemophilia who would receive health insurance premium assistance, and pay for increased operational costs of the program.)
