A. In administering the Hospitalization and Outpatient Services for Indigent and Medically Indigent subprogram, the Department shall be guided by the following:

1. The allocation of state funds shall be based on the estimated total cost of required services in each county and city less the funds which shall be provided by the counties and cities. County and city funding shall be based upon a sliding scale not to exceed 25 percent of the total cost of required services.

2. Out of this subprogram, $113,550 the first year and $113,550 the second year from the general fund is reserved to support the state's share of expenses associated with inpatient services for migrants on the Eastern Shore. Reimbursement for costs shall be made in accordance with the requirements of the State/Local Hospitalization Program and will require a local match.

3. Any funds for the State/Local Hospitalization Program unexpended at the end of the fiscal year shall not revert to the general fund but shall remain in the Program, to be used as an offset to the calculated local share for the following year.

B. The appropriation includes for the second year $100,000 from the general fund and $120,702 from federal trust funds to provide insurance payment assistance for HIV-infected persons in accordance with § 32.1-330.1, Code of Virginia.
