(This amendment delays implementation of the Virginia Medicaid program's participation in the Commonwealth's Health Information Exchange (ConnectVirginia) by reducing funding of $250,000 from the general fund and $250,000 from federal matching Medicaid funds. Currently, efforts are underway to implement participation of the Virginia Department of Health's health information and records in ConnectVirginia. Until that effort is complete and successful, Medicaid implementation will be delayed.)
