Health and Human Resources
Department of Medical Assistance Services


Page 308, line 57, after "authority.", insert:

"If the combination of uncertainty regarding ongoing funding and the brief turnaround period for the initial applications results in less than 25 additional qualified slots being applied for in the first year, any residual funds will be set aside in a subcomponent of the Virginia Health Care Fund to be used exclusively for offsetting a portion of the $1,250,000 in general fund costs for the continuation of this program."


(This amendment adds language reserving any unused funding for Medicaid residency slots in the Virginia Health Care Fund to offset future costs to continue funding of the residency program, if there are fewer than 25 initial applications.)
