(This amendment provides funding for a 12 percent increase for mental retardation (MR) waiver providers. The first across the board funding increase for MR waiver services was provided by the 2004 General Assembly. Anecdotal evidence continues to suggest that Medicaid reimbursement rates for MR waiver providers are inadequate to attract and retain qualified providers.)
