Appropriation #2006059                                                                                                                $ 6,365.00

The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) administers the State and Local Hospitalization (SLH) program for the Commonwealth of Virginia.  For FY 2005, the total state appropriation is $10.8 million (84.1%) and the total local share funding will be $2.0 million (15.9%), for a total funding of $12.8 million.  As in prior years, some localities will experience similar allocations to previous years, and some will be significantly different.  The localities that are changing significantly this year are primarily changing due to changes in claims data from fiscal year 2004.  DMAS is also implementing a calculation change that meets all the requirements of Section 32.1-343 et seq., of the Code of Virginia, which will result in a more equitable distribution to localities.  DMAS has proposed a two-year phased in approach which should result in a smoother transition for localities.  As a result, an additional $6,365.00 is needed for the County’s share of the State and Local Hospitalization program for FY06.

The Board of Supervisor’s approved policy allocates 100% of unbudgeted revenues and 60% of departmental expenditure savings to the CIP Reserve Fund for future capital needs, capital repairs and maintenance items and/or debt service.  The policy further states that the remaining 40% of expenditure savings may be used for other projects at the Board’s discretion and approval.  The policy was developed to establish guidelines for the use of end-of-year revenues and expenditure savings.  The preliminary estimate of the transfer to the CIP Reserve Fund was approved by the Board at its October 5th meeting with the understanding that the appropriation of those funds would be finalized when the fiscal year audit was completed.  This appropriation authorizes the transfer of $1,475,017.82 in unbudgeted FY05 revenue and $1,083,516.89 in FY05 expenditure savings to the CIP Reserve Fund pursuant to this policy.
