(This amendment provides $1.3 million GF and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds the second year to restore funding for environmental modifications under the Elderly or Disabled with Consumer Direction Waiver and AIDS Waiver. The proposed budget eliminates funding for assistive technology and environmental modification under these waivers. The amendment would continue coverage for environmental modifications which includes home entrance ramps and bathroom access. EM can reduce the number of service hours needed by providing an accessible environment that can allow the individual to perform functions independently or with less paid support.)
