(This amendment provides $34,718 from the general fund and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds the second year to add tobacco cessation services to the Medicaid program for adults not otherwise currently covered. The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that Medicaid provide coverage for prevention services, including tobacco cessation, for individuals enrolled pursuant to the ACA. This amendment allows all adults in Medicaid to have access to tobacco cessation services.)
