The Secretary of Health and Human Resources shall conduct a comprehensive review and analysis of Virginia's insured and uninsured populations to accurately determine the level of financial support needed for the Virginia Association of Free Clinics, the Virginia Community Healthcare Association, and the Virginia Health Care Foundation upon implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010.  The report shall include data on the number of individuals currently served by these organizations, anticipated enrollment growth, and an estimate of Virginians who will remain uninsured after implementation of PPACA.  The Secretary shall report his findings to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by October 1, 2012."
