(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds in fiscal year 2020 for the fiscal impact of House Bill 2177, which requires health insurers, health care subscription plans, and health maintenance organizations whose policy, contract, or plan includes coverage for medicines to classify medically necessary formula and enteral nutrition products as medicine and to include coverage for medically necessary formula and enteral nutrition products on the same terms and subject to the same conditions imposed on other medicines covered under the policy, contract, or plan. This funding covers Medicaid reimbursement for this coverage under Medicaid managed care plans.)
