"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 the authority to implement this reimbursement change efective July 1, 2012, and prior to the completion of any regulatory process undertaken in order to effect such change."

(This amendment provides $274,752 from the general fund and $274,752 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 by ten percent. Funding would increase rates from $120 to $132 per month. This will assist local lead agencies in providing additional case management services for families with infants and toddlers in need of these services.)
