The disproportionate share payments made to hospitals must be made, to the extent allowed by the State Plan for Medicaid, from the Medicaid Budget Account.


The money in the Intergovernmental Transfer Account must be transferred from that Account to the Medicaid Budget Account to the extent that money is available from the Federal Government for proposed expenditures, including expenditures for administrative costs.

To an account established for the provision of health care services to uninsured children pursuant to a federal program in which at least 50 percent of the cost of such services is paid for by the Federal Government, including, without limitation, the Children’s Health Insurance Program; or


To carry out the provisions of NRS 439B.350 and 439B.360.
