(This amendment provides funding for assisted living residents who are projected to become eligible for Medicaid as a result of implementing a rate increase for the Auxiliary Grant Program. A companion amendment to Item 359 provides an increase of $306 each month from $944 to $1,250, which results in an increase in the number of individuals eligible for the Auxiliary Grant. Auxiliary Grant recipients are automatically eligible for the Medicaid program. The introduced budget provided a $50 per month rate increase for the Auxiliary Grant program, increasing payments from $894 to $944 per month and providing funding for Medicaid eligibility. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
