"2.  Effective July 1, 2011, the Department of Medical Assistance Services shall set the reimbursement rate for Intensive In-Home Services for Children and Adolescents and the assessment to $65."

(This amendment provides funding to restore the rate paid to providers of intensive in-home services for children and adolescents at $65, one-half the reduction that was adopted in February 2010. Intensive in-home services includes home-based mental health counseling interventions for children up to age 21 who are at risk of being moved into a higher cost out-of-home placement.)
