"5.  The Board of Medical Assistance Services shall promulgate regulations, which shall be effective July 1, 1997, to amend the state plan for medical assistance to reimburse licensed clinical psychologists, licensed clinical social workers and licensed professional counselors, as required by Virginia Code § 32.1-325."
