(This amendment adds $1.3 million from the general fund and $1.3 million from matching federal Medicaid funds the second year to restore two services, assistive technology and environmental modifications, for individuals receiving services through the Medicaid Elderly or Disabled with Consumer Direction Waiver (EDCD) and the AIDS Waiver. The introduced budget eliminated these services which were added in fiscal year 2008 to the waiver programs. Environmental modifications are used to provide an accessible environment such as home entrance ramps and bathroom modifications. These modifications can reduce the number of service hours needed by providing an accessible environment that can allow the individuals to perform functions independently or with less paid support.)
