"LLL. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall amend the State Plan for Medical Assistance to increase the rate for Part C Early Intervention Targeted Case Management from $120 to $132 per month.  The department shall have authority to enact emergency regulations under § 2.2-4011 of the Administrative Process Act to effect these provisions."

(This amendment provides $274,752 from the general fund and $275,752 from federal Medicaid matching funds each year to increase the Medicaid payment rate for Part C early intervention targeted case management for infants and toddlers with disabilities. Funding would increase rates from $120 to $132 per month. This ten percent increase in the rate will improve the ability of local lead agencies to provide case management for the 3,816 infants and toddlers and their families each month and reduce the waiting list for these services which is prohibited by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.)
