(This amendment reduces $1.5 million in the second year from the general fund and $1.8 million from matching federal funds for a rate increase for pediatric services. The introduced budget included $5.2 million GF for a seven percent increase for pediatric services. This amendment provides a rate increase for Medicaid and FAMIS physician payment rates of two percent beginning July 1, 2007, including pediatric services. 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 the rates for all other physician services, except OB/GYN services, will increase from three to five percent in fiscal year 2008.)
