The incentive program may (1) allow providers who otherwise meet contractual requirements to retain a percentage of any savings realized by the providers from the contracted cost for services, (2) require that at least fifty per cent of savings retained by the providers be used to expand such services, and (3) provide that future contracted amounts from the state for the same types of services are not reduced solely to reflect savings achieved in previous contracts by such providers.
