(This amendment adds funding to restore eligibility for pregnant women enrolled in the FAMIS Moms program and individuals enrolled in the the Plan First program who are not able to enroll in the federal Health Insurance Marketplace. Funding for these programs was eliminated last year in anticipation of individuals enrolling in the marketplace. Many low-income individuals are not eligible for subsidized coverage through the marketplace due to family circumstances, application difficulties, processing problems, and enrollment deadlines. Language in the budget is modified to effectuate this change.)
