In Section 03, on Page 43, DELETE the following:

From  the  funds  in  Specific  Appropriation 191, the Agency for Health
Care Administration shall not procure a statewide-single source provider
for a disposable incontinence medical supply program.  To provide choice
for  beneficiaries,  maximize  program  efficiencies,  and  cost savings
within  the  Medicaid  program,  medical  supplies  shall continue to be
provided  by  state  enrolled medical equipment companies.  In addition,
pursuant  to  sections  409.961  through  409.985,  Florida Statutes, no
language may be introduced to limit the ability of Medicaid managed care
plans  to  provide  incontinence medical supplies during the term of the
contracts for these services including any extensions.  The agency shall
seek any federal Medicaid waiver necessary to implement this provision.
