(This amendment restores $300,000 the first year from the general fund for the Department of Medical Assistance Services to contract with a consultant with expertise in health care rate setting to thoroughly analyze current Medicaid rates for services likely impacted by an increase in the state minimum wage and to make recommendations for rate adjustments as appropriate. These funds were included in the budget passed in March, but subsequently unallotted in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget for the 2020 Special Session I.)
