Page 257, line 32, strike "$8,515,698,638" and insert "$8,526,198,638".
Page 281, after line 10, insert:
"OOOO. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall seek and implement a waiver to extend Intellectual and Developmental Disability waiver services to 350 wait-listed individuals with modest support needs using individual resource allocations  that are based on person-centered planning and individual  support  needs.   These waiver slots shall be phased in beginning July 1, 2015."

(This amendment seeks to provide a more cost-effective method of service delivery to better serve persons on the I/DD waiver waiting lists. As redesigned ID and DD waivers are implemented, the average per capita cost per waiver will differ based on the services and supports needed to meet the individual's needs. The new, tiered approached to delivering less expensive waiver options will help the Commonwealth reduce waiting lists for I/DD long-term services and supports and use available resources more efficiently.)
