(This amendment provides $28.5 million from the general fund the second year to remove the local match for residential services and certain foster care case management services. Currently, localities are required to pay a portion of the non-federal Medicaid match for these services. The new proposed process by which children will be admitted to residential treatment via Medicaid potentially will bifurcate the decision about the local match contribution, further complicating this issue. Eliminating the local Medicaid match for residential treatment would align the financial responsibility for the placement decisions with the decision-making authority for these placements.)
