Health and Human Resources
Department of Medical Assistance Services FY2023 ($421,498) FY2024 $0 GF

Page 341, line 4, strike "$296,394,443" and insert "$294,784,803".


(This amendment eliminates $421,498 from the general fund and $1.2 million in federal Medicaid matching funds provided in the introduced budget for costs related to the merger of the Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus and Medallion 4.0 managed care programs. The 2021 Appropriation Act provided $1.0 million from the general fund and $1.5 million from federal Medicaid funds for the merger-related costs of the two programs in fiscal year 2022. Additional funding is unnecessary since this funding would be provided after the merger of the two programs, which will actually result in administrative cost savings for the Commonwealth.)
