(This amendment reduces $7.6 million GF and restores $7.6 million NGF from federal Medicaid funds the second year to correct an assumption about the level of federal support for children in families with income between 100 and 133 percent of poverty who are enrolled in Medicaid. The introduced budget assumed that the general fund share of Medicaid funding for these children would rise from approximately 35 cents on the dollar to 50 cents with the implementation of federal health care reform, resulting in a general fund cost to the Commonwealth of $7.6 million. Subsequent information confirmed that the state share of funding for these children would remain unchanged, resulting in general fund savings compared to the introduced budget of $7.6 million.)
