Page 288, after line 25, insert:

"R. The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and the Department of Medical Assistance Services shall modify competency requirements for supported employment providers in the developmental disability Medicaid waiver programs to allow providers that are Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) vendors that hold a national three-year accreditation from the National Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) be deemed qualified to meet any staff competency requirements."



Explanation

(This amendment adds language which allows supported employment providers in the Medicaid developmental disability waiver programs that are DARS vendors and hold a national three-year accreditation from the National CARF to be considered qualified to meet any staff competency requirements as required by DBHDS or DMAS. DARS supported employment providers are encouraged to continually incorporate best practice staff competencies into their administrative and human resource policies and procedures.)
