(This amendment eliminates $1.2 million from the general fund and $1.2 million from nongeneral funds for new waiver slots associated with the proposed redesign of the Medicaid Day Support Waiver. Language is also eliminated authorizing the submission of amendments to the waiver to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Instead, a companion amendment in this item requires the Department of Medical Assistance Services, in collaboration with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, to provide a detailed report on its plans to redesign the Medicaid comprehensive Intellectual and Developmental Disability waivers prior to a submission of a request to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to amend the waivers. The General Assembly's Medicaid reform efforts have been focused on redesigning the comprehensive Intellectual Disability and Developmental Disability waivers to address the needs of the most disabled individuals, including those transitioning from training centers to the community and those at imminent risk of institutional care.)
