(This amendment restores $352,534 the second year from the general fund to require Medicaid managed care organizations to reimburse at no less than 90 percent of the state Medicaid fee schedule for durable medical equipment. These funds were included in the budget passed in March 2020, but subsequently unallotted in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget for the 2020 Special Session I.)
