     1    Section 1. Subdivision 2-a of section 2807 of the public health law is
     2  amended by adding a new paragraph (j) to read as follows:
     3    (j)  The  commissioner  shall,  in  conjunction with hospital industry
     4  representatives, provide written recommendations to the governor and the
     5  legislature on or before  October  first,  two  thousand  seventeen,  on
     6  increasing  ambulatory  patient  groups  reimbursement rates established
     7  pursuant to this subdivision for general hospital  outpatient  services,
