(This amendment eliminates the prohibition in the budget on providing inflation to residential psychiatric treatment facilities. State regulations authorize inflation for these providers but budget language prevents such inflation adjustments from being made. Restoring inflation to these providers results in an increase in Medicaid expenditures by $2.9 million general fund and a like amount of federal matching funds each year.)
