"greater than 50% Medicaid utilization in 2009 in fiscal year 2018 only."


(This amendment adds $1.4 million from the general fund and $1.4 million from matching federal Medicaid funds the second year and strikes language which would have prohibited the payment of an inflation adjustment in inpatient hospital payments to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) in fiscal year 2018. Language contained in the budget would have effectively reduced CHKD's inpatient hospital payments as well as Disproportionate Share Hospital, graduate medical education and indirect medical education payments.)
