(This amendment provides funding to increase reimbursement for home- and community-based Medicaid mental retardation and developmentally disabled waiver services by 14 percent in FY 2008. The 2006 General Assembly provided a rate increase of five percent for providers delivering unique services provided through the Medicaid Mental Retardation (MR) and Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support or Day Support Home and Community-based Waiver Programs and a 10 percent increase to providers of congregate residential group home services for individuals in the MR Waiver program beginning July 1, 2006. Providers continue to report challenges in recruiting, hiring and retaining qualified staff.)
