(This amendment adds $1.6 million from the general fund each year and eliminates $1.6 million each year from the acute care hospital provider assessment fund as the source of funding for the remaining cost of implementing the Medicaid 1115 waiver. The introduced budget no longer contains authorization for the Department of Medical Assistance Services to pursue the provisions related to implementing the Training, Education, Employment and Opportunity (TEEOP) program and health and wellness accounts pursuant to the waiver. However, it does still include authorization for a supportive employment and housing benefit for high risk Medicaid beneficiaries.)
