(This amendment adds $150,000 from the general fund and $150,000 from matching federal Medicaid funding the first year to fund the fiscal impact of House Bill 1046, which directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services to study options for and develop a plan to implement a process that provides Medicaid recipients with payments that can be used to purchase over-the-counter medications and medical supplies. Currently, certain over-the-counter medications can be purchased more cheaply by a recipient than the amount charged to the Medicaid program.)
