(This amendment provides funding to increase the personal maintenance allowance for Medicaid home- and community-based services waivers from 100 percent to 150 percent of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment standard. This excludes the AIDS waiver personal maintenance allowance which is already at 300 percent of the SSI payment standard. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
