(This amendment provides an additional $24.6 million general funds and $24.6 million in matching federal Medicaid funds in the second year to increase reimbursement for agency directed personal and skilled nursing services provided by home care providers in the Medicaid program by 40 percent. The 2004 General Assembly had provided a five percent increase for these providers beginning July 1, 2005. With this additional funding the statewide rate paid for personal care services under Medicaid community-based waiver programs would increase from $14.05/hour to $19.67/hour in Northern Virginia and $11.93/hour to $16.70/hour in the rest of the state.)
