(This amendment provides a total of $6.2 million the second year to reimburse providers for the cost of services provided by increasing the rate paid for personal care services by five percent under Medicaid community-based waiver programs from $14.05/hour to $14.75/hour in northern Virginia and $11.93/hour to $12.53/hour in the rest of the state. The 2004 General Assembly provided funding for a five percent increase effective July 1, 2005; this additional funding will permit a 10 percent increase.)
