(This amendment eliminates $38.9 million from the general fund and $38.9 million in matching federal Medicaid funds the second year contained in the Medicaid forecast that was included to pay the health insurance fee on managed care contracts as required by the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Passage of U.S. Public Law No 115-120 on January 22, 2018 suspended this fee for calendar year 2019, which results in a savings in the amount paid by the Department of Medical Assistance Services in fiscal year 2020.)
