(This amendment reduces the nongeneral fund appropriation and six positions remaining in the Department of Medical Assistance Services' budget for implementing the requirements of the COMPASS waiver. The introduced budget eliminated many of the waiver's requirements and as such the remaining administrative funding is adjusted to reflect the remaining scope of the waiver. The amendment leaves two positions, at a cost of $257,643 each year and $1.5 million each year for vendor costs related to continuing development and implementation of the remaining portions of the waiver. Half of the funding is to provide the hospital provider assessment for the state match and the other half is from federal Medicaid funds.)
