(This amendment funds the costs of additional children that are expected to enroll in the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) program as a result of implementation of Marketplace Virginia. This phenomena, known as the "woodwork" effect, results from increased awareness of a major program change. As families seek coverage under Marketplace Virginia, some will be determined to be eligible for the existing FAMIS program; this amendment reflects that impact.)
