(This amendment removes funding proposed in the introduced budget for the on-going costs of the CoverVirginia call center related to an expected increase in call volume from Medicaid enrollees receiving notifications on insurance. The Affordable Care Act requires that individuals be notified by insurers of their insurance status during the year. Beginning in 2016, state Medicaid programs are required to send out these notices. Call volumes for this issue are uncertain at this point, therefore the funding is removed until additional information on the real impact is determined.)
