(This amendment recognizes savings to the Medicaid general fund forecast by $1.5 million the second year to recognize savings due to provisions related to the availability of subsidized private health insurance offered through a Health Benefits Exchange included in the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Language contained in the introduced budget would eliminate certain Medicaid and FAMIS program offerings to certain populations with incomes above 133 percent of the federal poverty level that will be eligible for subsidized coverage available through a Health Benefits Exchange. Continued coverage would remove disincentives for subsidized private health care coverage through publicly-offered alternatives. Language in the introduced budget allows for a smooth transition from the public coverage to the extent possible.)
