(This amendment restores $453,910 the first year and $635,474 the second year from the general funds and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds for Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments to state behavioral health facilities, Catawba Hospital and Piedmont Geriatric Hospital. The DSH payments were reduced in the introduced budget due to expected federal reductions to state DSH allocations. These DSH reductions were delayed for two years in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018.)
