(This amendment adds $14.1 million the first year from the general fund and $12.7 million from federal Medicaid matching funds and other nongeneral funds to eliminate savings in fiscal year 2021 from a change to reimbursement for certain avoidable medical services provided emergency room settings. Language delays the implementation of the reimbursement change until fiscal year 2022 and the Medicaid state plan amendment is approved by the federal government.)
