SECTION 99.   Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, payments from the Health Safety Net Trust Fund established in section 66 of chapter 118E of the General Laws may be made either as safety net care payments under the commonwealth's waiver pursuant to section 1115 of the federal Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C 1315, or as an adjustment to service rate payments pursuant to Title XIX of the Social Security Act or a combination of both. Other federally permissible funding mechanisms available for certain public service hospitals, as defined by regulations of the executive office of health and human services, may be used to reimburse up to $20,000,000 of uncompensated care pursuant to sections 66 and 69 of said chapter 118E using sources distinct from the funding made available to the Health Safety Net Trust Fund.
