(This amendment provides $11.0 million the second year from the general fund to restore Medicaid payment rates for hospital inpatient care for Medicaid enrollees at the University of Virginia (UVA) Medical Center which were reduced as part of budget reduction strategies during the recession. This rate increase is necessary to fully meet the cost of providing care to Virginia residents who meet the indigent care criteria established for the state teaching hospitals. Medicaid payments together with indirect medical education and disproportionate share hospital payments enable the state teaching hospitals to provide care to a disproportionate share of the state's low-income and indigent patients.)
