(This amendment restores $10.7 million the first year and $22.0 million the second year from the general fund to increase group home, sponsored residential and group day support rates effective January 1, 2021 for services provided through the current Medicaid Developmental Disability Waiver programs using updated data measures available, including wage assumptions, to 100 percent of the rate model benchmark. These funds were included in the budget passed in March, but subsequently unallotted in April due to the pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget. A companion amendment updates rates for community integration services provided through the DD waiver programs.)
