"X.  Beginning July 1, 2000, the Department of Medical Assistance Services shall provide to nursing facilities with approved special care units fixed per-day Medicaid payments, which are equal to the Medicaid reimbursement payments applicable to the care of individuals with traumatic brain injuries at such facilities, for the care of individuals with acquired brain injuries that result from non-congenital causes other than direct trauma, such as cerebrovascular accidents, brain tumors, prolonged seizure activity, anoxia, and neurotoxicity."

(This amendment requires DMAS to provide nursing homes with Medicaid per diem payments for care of brain-injured persons.)
