(This amendment restores the funding for the Medicaid central processing unit at the Cover Virginia Call Center that was reduced in fiscal year 2016. This funding is necessary to more fully utilize the Cover Virginia Call Center as a central processing unit for Medicaid applications. The Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission recently recommended the Departments of Medical Assistance Services and Social Services develop a plan to expand the central processing unit to reduce the backlog of overdue Medicaid application renewals.)
