§ 1901e. Global Commitment Fund
(a) The Global Commitment Fund is created in the Treasury as a special fund. The Fund shall consist of the revenues received by the Treasurer as payment of the actuarially certified premium from the Agency of Human Services to the managed care organization within the Department of Vermont Health Access for the purpose of providing services under the Global Commitment to Health waiver approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under Section 1115 of the Social Security Act.
(b) The monies in the Fund shall be disbursed as allowed by appropriation of the General Assembly, and shall be disbursed by the Treasurer on warrants issued by the Commissioner of Finance and Management, when authorized by the Commissioner of Vermont Health Access and approved by the Commissioner of Finance and Management consistent with the interdepartmental agreements between the managed care organization within the Department of Vermont Health Access and departments delivering eligible services under the waiver. The Department of Vermont Health Access shall not modify an appropriation through an interdepartmental agreement or any other mechanism. A department or agency authorized to spend monies from this Fund under an interdepartmental agreement may spend monies appropriated as a base Medicaid expense for an allowable managed care organization investment under the terms and conditions of the Global Commitment to Health Medicaid Section 1115 waiver only after receiving approval from the Agency of Human Services.
(c) Annually, on or before October 1, the Agency shall provide a detailed report to the Joint Fiscal Committee that describes the managed care organization's investments under the terms and conditions of the Global Commitment to Health Medicaid Section 1115 waiver, including the amount of the investment and the agency or departments authorized to make the investment.
