(This amendment adds $1.2 million from the general fund the second year to restore funding to the Virginia Community Healthcare Association for prescription medications and health services provided through community health centers that was reduced by 50 percent in the introduced budget. In fiscal year 2011, community health centers served 117,090 low income, uninsured patients, of which 33,901 received pharmacy assistance. This represented an increase of 17.3 percent in uninsured patients from the prior year.)
