(iv) The sum of subparagraphs (ii) and (iii) of this paragraph shall be deducted from the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (i) of this paragraph. If such amount is negative, the State Supplement will be equal to zero. If such amount is positive, a provider shall receive the state supplement amount multiplied by the statewide budget neutrality factor for state supplement as calculated below.

(v) Statewide budget neutrality factor for state supplement, which shall mean the sum of the State Supplement from all provider rate sheets in effect on June thirtieth, two thousand fourteen less six million dollars consistent with the savings plan developed by the workgroup established pursuant to Chapter 53 of the Laws of two thousand thirteen, divided by the sum of the State Supplement for all providers, as calculated pursuant to subparagraph (iv) of this paragraph.

If the sum of the State Supplement from all provider rate sheets in effect on June thirtieth, two thousand fourteen is lower than the sum of the state supplement for all providers as calculated pursuant to subparagraph (iv) of this paragraph then the Statewide budget neutrality factor shall be applied. If such sum is greater, then no statewide budget neutrality factor for state supplement shall be applied.

(7) Adjustments for July first, two thousand fourteen through October thirty-first, two thousand fourteen. The Department shall calculate the amount of reimbursement each provider would have received for July first through October thirty-first, two thousand fourteen for services under the methodology described in the November first, two thousand fourteen amendments to this Subpart.
