   27  number of visits, number of services, or any other adjustments
   28  necessary to comply with the availability of moneys and any
   29  limitations or directions provided for in the General

   35  under the direction of a licensed physician, licensed advanced
   36  registered nurse practitioner, or licensed dentist, except that
   37  payment for such care and services is limited to $1,500 per
   38  state fiscal year per recipient, unless an exception has been
   39  made by the agency, and with the exception of a Medicaid
   40  recipient under age 21 or a Medicaid recipient of any age who is
   41  receiving such care in a community-based clinic of a publicly
   42  owned hospital, in which case the only limitation is medical
