(This amendment provides $4.1 million the second year from the general fund and $4.5 million from federal matching funds for the fiscal impact of Senate Bill 499, which provides Medicaid coverage for expenses incurred in the provision of pasteurized human donated milk. The requirement applies if the covered person is an infant under the age of six months, the milk is obtained from a human milk bank that meets quality guidelines established by the Virginia Department of Health, and a licensed medical practitioner has issued an order for an infant who satisfies certain criteria.)
