Health And Human Resources
Medical Assistance Services, Department of

Page 333, after line 25, insert:
"PPP.  The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall increase the rates paid for individual supported employment provided under Medicaid home- and community-based waivers to the same level paid by the Department of Rehabilitiative Services to employment services organizations.  The department shall implement this reimbursement change on July 1, 2007."

(This amendment adds language directing the department to increase individual supported employment rates for providers of home- and community-based waiver services to be consistent with the existing supported employment rates currently established by the Department of Rehabilitative Services. This change should increase access to supported employment services and diminish the need for other Medicaid-funded waiver services. Therefore, the fiscal impact is expected to be minimal.)
