Page 206, after line 10, insert:
"2.    If there is an extension through June 30, 2011 of increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (P.L. 111-5), the Department of Medical Assistance Services shall amend the 1915 (c) home- and community-based Intellectual disabilities waiver to add 250 slots effective July 1, 2010 to address the community waiting list.”

(The introduced budget included several reductions to Medicaid home-and community-based waiver services including a freeze on adding new slots not specifically related to the down-sizing of Southeastern Virginia Training Center or other state facilities. Language provides an exception for the addition of 250 community-based waiver slots for individuals with intellectual disabilities if Congress passes a six-month extension of increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) through June 30, 2011.)
