(This amendment eliminates $30.6 million from the general fund and $30.6 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. The federal Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, Division N, Subtitle E § 502, repealed the annual fee on health insurance providers, which applies to calendar years beginning after December 31, 2020 (fee years after the 2020 fee year). This results in a savings in the amount paid by the Department of Medical Assistance Services in fiscal year 2022.)
