(This amendment provides funds in the first year only for an average per diem increase in nursing facility reimbursement of $3.00 per day to provide an incentive to increase direct care staffing within nursing facilities during the one-year transition pending implementation of a new Medicaid reimbursement methodology. Two companion budget amendments also increase nursing facility reimbursement for direct and indirect care costs. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
