(This amendment provides $10.4 million from the general fund and $10.4 million in federal Medicaid matching funds to provide a 20 percent increase in the reimbursement rate for congregate residential services in sites with four or fewer beds. Currently, Virginia receives a higher federal Medicaid matching rate for individuals placed in community congregate residential facilities with four or fewer beds through the Money Follows the Person program. However, Virginia lacks capacity to place individuals in these smaller residential sites because they are not cost effective for providers to operate given the current Medicaid reimbursement rate for these services.)
