(This amendment funds the projected increase in enrollment for the state's Medicaid Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) as a result of the implementation of Marketplace Virginia. This "woodwork effect" results in higher program enrollment due to increased awareness resulting from a major program change. As individuals apply for coverage it is determined that they qualify for the existing program rather than the Marketplace Virginia; this amendment reflects those costs.)
