"4. In the event new federal funding is approved by Congress through legislation and distributed to Virginia for the purpose of responding to the Coronavirus public health emergency, the General Assembly shall consider the appropriation of such funds to support expenses incurred by Virginia's free and charitable clinics in a manner that is consistent with the provisions of state and federal law. The Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics shall provide an estimate of all allowed expenses as defined by federal law and shall be reimbursed for such expenses by any date required by federal law."
