(This amendment captures $500,000 in general fund savings by increasing the provider assessment on Intermediate Care Facilities for the Intellectually Disabled (ICF-ID). The current assessment is set at 5.5 percent but federal law allows a maximum of 6.0 percent. This amendment increases the assessment to 6.0 percent. The assessment on ICF-IDs generates additional state dollars used as matching funds to draw down federal Medicaid funds and applies to both private and state providers. The assessment increases the costs of ICF-IDs which can then be reimbursed by Medicaid keeping revenues for the facility whole.)
