CSA Medicaid Match to Conform to Federal ARRA Requirements (language only)

Item 283 #4c

Item 283 #4c

Health And Human Resources
Comprehensive Services for At-Risk Youth and Families

Page 297, line 38, after the first "for", insert "non-Medicaid".
Page 297, line 43, after "for", insert "non-Medicaid".
Page 297, line 47, after "expenditures.",  insert:
"The local match rate for all Medicaid services in both years shall be based on the match rate in place on September 1, 2008."

(This amendment adds language in the Comprehensive Services Act for At-Risk Youth and Families to clarify that local match rates for Medicaid-funded services provided through the CSA program are not reduced during the 2008-10 biennium. Any increases in local Medicaid match rates would violate local cost sharing requirements included within the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, thus jeopardizing $962 million in federal Medicaid revenue to the Commonwealth.)
