(This amendment adds $500,000 from the general fund in the second year to the Virginia Health Care Foundation to increase community grants for medication assistance services throughout the Commonwealth. Funding will provide approximately 13 additional medication assistance coordinators to help communities obtain greater access to prescription medicine for uninsured and underinsured low-income citizens. In fiscal year 2014, 39 medication assistance coordinators helped 16,450 uninsured Virginians from 67 localities obtain a total of $85.2 million in free medicines.)
