(This amendment reduces general fund support for the Medicaid Program by $378.0 million in fiscal year 2023 as a result of advancing payments by one year, from fiscal year 2023 to fiscal year 2022, to take advantage of a more generous federal Medicaid match rate during the current fiscal year due to the public health emergency. The amendment also reflects a change in federal Medicaid matching funds, resulting in additional general fund savings of $39.3 million the second year to the Commonwealth. A separate amendment to House Bill 29 appropriates additional general fund monies in fiscal year 2022 to fully fund current services. This amendment replaces general fund support for the program with enhanced federal funding, resulting in no change in services to Medicaid recipients. 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.)
