(This amendment provides $3.7 million from the general fund and $4.5 million from federal matching dollars to increase reimbursement rates for pediatric services by fifteen percent effective July 1, 2007. This increase applies to physicians and practitioners that deliver pediatric services to children age 21 and under who are enrolled in Medicaid and FAMIS. Language included in the introduced budget that provided an across the board increase for Medicaid physician services is stricken and funding redirected to increase reimbursement rates for services provided to children age 21 and younger.)
