(This amendment restores $119,995 from the general fund the second year and a like amount of matching federal Medicaid funds and restores language to require the Department of Medical Assistance Services to modify nursing facility capital reimbursement for a nursing facility that lost its status as a hospital-based nursing facility because a replacement hospital was built in a different location and it became a free-standing facility. Language is modified to make this effective July 1, 2021. Funding for this purpose was provided in Chapter 1289, 2020 Acts of Assembly, unallotted in April, 2020 and eliminated in Chapter 56, 2020 Special Session I Acts of Assembly.)
