(This amendment provides $1.0 million from the general fund in the second year to fund the impact of SB 914, which provides that in the event that the Commonwealth's lien against any recovery from a third party obtained by an injured person whose medical costs were paid in whole or in part by the Commonwealth is compromised by the Attorney General pursuant to § 2.2-514, such lien shall be reduced by an amount proportionate to the amount that costs, expenses, and attorney fees incurred by the injured person bear to the total recovery obtained from the third party, or a reduction of revenue from recovery of liens on personal injury settlements received by Medicaid recipients. This change in law will reduce recoveries to the Medicaid program which must be offset with general fund to fully fund the program.)
