"J. The Virginia Department of Health shall report for each month within 30 days after the end of each month, on the number of procedures approved for payment pursuant to  § 32.1-92.2, Code of Virginia, and include a description of the nature of the fetal abnormality, to the extent permitted by law,  as required for eligibility under § 32.1-92.2, Code of Virginia. The department shall report the information by letter to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees."


(This amendment requires the Department of Health to report monthly on the number of procedures approved for payment and a description of the fetal abnormality required pursuant to § 32.1-92.2 of the Code of Virginia, which allows for state payment of abortions for women who otherwise meet the financial eligibility criteria of the State Medical Assistance Plan.)
