(This amendment eliminates the authorization and funding, $9.6 million general fund and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds in the second year, for the Department of Medical Assistance Services to pay overtime compensation to consumer-directed attendants in the Medicaid waivers. Agency-directed care is not paid additional funding for overtime costs. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor significantly limits the ability to designate individuals as independent contractors, which creates a financial risk that the Department of Medical Assistance Services is determined to be the employer of record for consumer-directed attendants.)
