(This amendment reduces $2.4 million general fund the second year to reflect a increase in Medicaid recoveries for the Health Care Fund, which is used as state match for the Medicaid program. Higher revenues to the fund reduce the general fund need for Medicaid and likewise any increase in revenue results in additional general fund needed to fully fund the state match for Medicaid. Based on the the last few months of tobacco tax revenues, the decrease reflected in the introduced budget will likely be less than projected. This amendment reflects a slightly higher revenue estimate that reflects $2.2 million in revenue to the Health Care Fund. In addition, $150,000 in revenue is captured in Medicaid recoveries due to a repayment from a hospital that based on federal payment limits could not use the Disproportionate Share Hospital payments made to them in FY 2017.)
