(This amendment adds $11.2 million from the general fund and $11.2 million in matching federal Medicaid funds to extend the $20 per day add-on to Medicaid nursing and specialized care facility rates to June 30, 2021, to provide stability to the nursing home industry during the COVID-19 crisis. The funding includes the estimated cost of the $20 a day for the last quarter of fiscal year 2021 and assumes the prior costs are included in the 2020 Official Medicaid Forecast and can be offset by the federal extension of the enhanced match rate for Medicaid through March 31, 2021.)
