(This amendment removes $10.1 million from the general fund and $38,332 in federal Medicaid matching funds to reflect the updated timeline for the phase-in of community behavioral health services in Medicaid. The redesign of these services was originally planned to be implemented beginning January 2021, however the budget impacts of COVID-19 resulted in delaying the beginning date to July 1, 2021. In the Special Session budget, Chapter 56, the full second year funding was restored, but the funding did not reflect the revised timeline. This amendment adjusts funding for these services to reflect the updated timeline including how the various services will be phased in over the next year.)
