(This amendment provides an additional $100,000 each year from the general fund to the Virginia Health Care Foundation for the Rx Partnership. Rx Partnership's generic access program filled an average of 1,000 prescriptions a month for over 200 unduplicated patients for 12 health safety net facilities serving 32 jurisdictions. Based upon the growth and success of the program and the loss of private pilot funding, funding is need to support the existing program and to expand utilization by 20 percent over the biennium.)
