(This amendment adds $2.2 million from the general fund the second year to provide increased rates for Part C Early Intervention Services case management from $132 per month per child to $175.40 for infants and toddlers with disabilities who are Medicaid-eligible. This is the appropriate rate for the service according to the Department of Medical Assistance Services study. By not fully funding the cost of the service, other sources of funding must be used to cover the cost of the Medicaid service. Using non-Medicaid funds decreases the amount of funding available for those infants and toddlers who are not eligible for Medicaid. This funding will cover 5,094 Medicaid-eligible infants in fiscal year 2016.)
