(This amendment provides funding for a three percent increase in the reimbursement rate for all physicians except pediatric services and OB/GYN services effective July 1, 2007. Under current law, physician service reimbursement rates will increase by three percent on July 1, 2007. With this increase, reimbursement rates will increase by six percent in FY 2008. Pediatric and OB/GYN services are not included in this increase, because they have already been adjusted higher than overall physician rates.)
