10  and funded pursuant to chapter 154, Florida Statutes, the

11  countywide health taxing district provides for reimbursement

12  on an accountability basis to medical providers for medical,

13  hospital, and emergency care, including psychiatric care

14  provided to indigents indigent residing within the county, and

29  that is actually paid to the hospital by the countywide taxing

30  district.
