(This amendment recognizes savings of $114.0 to the general fund offset by $114.0 million in matching federal Medicaid funds the first year due to the continuation of the fourth quarter of a 6.2% enhanced federal medical assistance percentage (eFMAP) received in response to the economic impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic authorized in the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act. In order to receive the eFMAP as authorized, states are required to maintain the eligibility of individuals enrolled during declared federal public health emergency. The continued maintenance of effort requires the addition of $23.7 million from the general fund which is matched by $23.7 million in federal Medicaid funds the second year.)
