(This amendment reduces $800,000 from the general fund the first year and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds to reflect the temporary pause in Medicaid billing by the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents (CCCA) as a result of not meeting the accreditation standards necessary to bill for Medicaid. The facility is expected to begin billing again in the second year once accreditation is achieved, so this amendment adjusts the appropriation in the first year only. Language is also removed that would have allowed these funds to be transferred to CCCA; however such action is unnecessary as the facility is using special funds to cover the loss in Medicaid revenue.)
