Item 274 #3h

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

Page 180, after line 42, insert:
"L.  Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, local match rates for the purchase of services, including public and private residential and nonresidential services, by community policy and management teams pursuant to this chapter shall be consistent, regardless of the location or nature of the services purchased."

(This amendment equalizes local matching rates for services provided through the Comprehensive Services Act. Currently, localities receive a larger percentage share of reimbursement by the Commonwealth for community based services than for residential services.)
