(This amendment adjusts funding for the fiscal year 2014 premium increase for the state employee health insurance program. The introduced budget was based on rates projected prior to finalizing the new contracts for the health insurance program and assumed savings from the establishment of a new retail maintenance network for maintenance drugs. This amendment reflects funding to reflect premiums calculated after the new contracts have been finalized and restores language included in Chapter 3 which prohibits the establishment of the retail maintenance network for maintenance drugs. In addition, the amendment captures $300,000 in savings in the second year in projected unobligated balances that were included in Chapter 3 to reflect the 2013 premium rate increase.)
