(This amendment restores the funding to provide inflation for hospitals in FY 2017 and FY 2018. Hospital inflation is eliminated in the introduced budget on the rationale that Medicaid Expansion would financially benefit hospitals to a much greater extent. However, Medicaid Expansion does not benefit freestanding children's hospitals since children are already covered under existing Medicaid and this action adversely impacts them as compared to other hospitals.)
