(This amendment reduces funding by $452,277 the first year and $522,046 the second year from the general fund for medical services of involuntary mental commitments. Hospital rates are rebased every three years to ensure the prospective rate methodology is based on the most recent cost information. The latest rebasing calculations reflect a rate reduction. The introduced budget reflected savings in the Medicaid program but not the other medical assistance programs that are also impacted.)
