(This amendment reduces Medicaid expenditures in the second year by $1.0 million from the general fund and increases nongeneral funds in the Virginia Health Care Fund (VHCF) by $1.0 million from expanded estate recovery efforts. The introduced budget provides funding for three additional positions for the estate recovery program. Under Medicaid law, following the death of the Medicaid recipient a state must attempt to recover from his or her estate whatever long-term care benefits it paid for the recipient's care. Recoveries are deposited into the VHCF and used to offset the general fund spending for the Medicaid Program.)
