(This amendment changes the effective date for the allowance of overtime by consumer-directed personal care attendants from July 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021 to reflect the restoration of funding for this policy change in a separate amendment to Item 482.20. The funding restored in Item 482.20 funds up to eight hours of overtime per week from January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021. Effective July 1, 2021, up to 16 hours of overtime per week is funded for personal care attendants.)
