  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1. Subdivision 1 of section 2557 of the public health law, as
amended by section 4 of part C of chapter 1 of  the  laws  of  2002,  is
amended to read as follows:
  1. The approved costs for an eligible child who receives an evaluation

upon  the  municipality wherein the eligible child resides AND THE STATE
or, where the services are covered by the  medical  assistance  program,
upon  the social services district of fiscal responsibility with respect
to those eligible children who are also eligible for medical assistance.
All approved costs shall be paid IN FULL AT  THE  STATE  APPROVED  EARLY
INTERVENTION  RATE  in the first instance [and at least quarterly by the
appropriate governing body or officer of the municipality upon  vouchers
presented  and  audited  in  the same manner as the case of other claims
against the municipality] BY THE STATE OR ITS DESIGNATED FISCAL AGENT TO

NATED  STATE  FISCAL AGENT OF AN INITIAL CLAIM FROM A PROVIDER.  WHERE A

exclusion  shall  apply  with  respect to payments made pursuant to this
