(This amendment adds $505,953 in the second year from the general fund and $246,231 in matching federal funds to increase Medicaid and FAMIS physician payment rates by two percent beginning July 1, 2007. The 2006 General Assembly provided an eight percent rate increase for Medicaid pediatric services and an increase of three percent for all other Medicaid physician rates except OB/GYN services beginning July 1, 2007. This additional funding will bring the increase for pediatric services up to 10 percent in the second year and rate for all other physician services will increase from three to five percent in fiscal year 2008.)
