"and by 20 percent effective January 1, 2008".

(This amendment provides a 20 percent rate increase for Medicaid adult day health care services, effective January 1, 2008. The 2006 General Assembly approved a five percent rate increase for adult day health care services which took effect on January 1, 2007. Even with this rate increase, providers are reporting a gap of $10 to $49 per day between actual costs and Medicaid reimbursement, which must be made up through contributions from individuals, churches, corporations, and foundations. This amendment will increase the statewide rate paid for Medicaid adult day health care services from $50.61/day to $60.73/day in Northern Virginia and from $46.11/day to $55.33/day in the rest of the state. With the increase, providers will continue to need to leverage private dollars to meet projected costs.)
