(This amendment removes funding for an additional payment to hospitals operating neonatal intensive care units with Medicaid utilization or bed days in excess of 50 percent. Two hospitals, Inova Health System and Children's Hospital of the King's Daughter, receive this additional payment. The introduced budget eliminated an extra payment of $97,530 GF and $97,530 NGF for Johnson City (TN) Memorial, a hospital that also qualified for this provision.)
