Eliminate Funding for Federal Disallowance Payment

Item 301 #20s

Item 301 #20s

First Year - FY2015 Second Year - FY2016
Health and Human Resources
Medical Assistance Services, Department of FY2015 ($24,445,885) FY2016 $0 GF

Page 245, line 42, strike "$8,495,724,272" and insert "$8,471,278,387".

(This amendment eliminates $24.4 million GF the first year from the Medicaid forecast that was set aside in anticipation of an adverse ruling in a dispute regarding inpatient psychiatric services provided to children under age 21 that would have required a federal disallowance payment. The federal government has notified the Commonwealth that its corrective action plan is satisfactory, therefore, no federal disallowance payment is required. The Medicaid forecast included $24.4 million GF in FY 2015 in anticipation of this federal repayment.)
