(This amendment supplants general fund for the Medicaid program with a federal bonus payment Virginia is expected to receive for taking actions to enroll more children in the program. This bonus was authorized in the federal Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) of 2009 and is based on a calculation of the change in children's enrollment for Medicaid. Virginia's expected bonus payment is $20.6 million each year. The introduced budget accounted for $16.5 million of the anticipated bonus payment in each year. This action will use the additional $4.1 million associated with the revised estimate to offset costs in the Medicaid program.)
