"2. Effective January 1, 2017, the rates for Sponsored Residential services shall include a rate differential for Northern Virginia providers.  The rate differential shall be based on the recommendation provided by the consultant that developed the new rates for the intellectual and developmental disability waivers."


(This amendment provides $328,452 the first year and $656,903 the second year from the general fund and a corresponding increase in federal Medicaid matching funds for providing a rate differential in the family home payment for Northern Virginia providers of Sponsored Residential services. As part of the redesign of the Intellectual and Developmental Disability waivers the rate increases proposed by the consultant did not take into account such a differential for this service.)
