(This amendment provides funding for the fiscal impact of House Bill 1227 which would increase access to services under the Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act by allowing additional providers who diagnose women with breast or cervical cancer to refer these individuals to the State Title XV Grantee (Every Woman's Life Program) for eligibility verification and referral to Medicaid for treatment under the Act. This amendment provides $67,000 each year from the general fund for administrative expenses of the grantee. A companion amendment in the Department of Medical Assistance Services provides $1.9 million each year for the increase in treatment costs.)
