    1         Senate Amendment

    4  and insert:
    5  under this section, the health care provider must receive no
    6  compensation from the governmental contractor for any services
    7  provided under the contract and must not bill or accept
    8  compensation from the recipient, or a public or private third
    9  party payor, for the specific services provided to the low
   10  income recipients covered by the contract, except as provided in
   11  paragraphs (4)(g) and (h). A free clinic as described in
   12  subparagraph (3)(d)14. may receive a legislative appropriation,
   13  a grant through a legislative appropriation, or a grant from a
   14  governmental entity or nonprofit corporation to support the
   15  delivery of such contracted services by volunteer health care
   16  providers, including the employment of health care providers to
   17  supplement, coordinate, or support the delivery of services by
   18  volunteer health care providers. Such an appropriation or grant
   19  does not constitute compensation under this paragraph from the
   20  governmental contractor for services provided under the
   21  contract, nor does receipt and use of the appropriation or grant
   22  constitute the acceptance of compensation under this paragraph
   23  for the specific services provided to the low-income recipients
   24  covered by the contract.
