(This amendment adds $2.4 million from the general fund and $2.4 million from nongeneral funds each year for the purchase of customized wheelchairs for Medicaid members with disabilities. Customized wheelchairs will reduce other costly medical treatment for secondary medical issues resulting from the lack of appropriate medically necessary equipment. Funding is contingent upon final passage of House Bill 241. It is the intent of the General Assembly that in the enrolling of this act, funding included in this item shall be allocated among appropriate items within the Department of Medical Assistance Services.)
