(This amendment restores $507,500 the first year and $373,000 the second year from the general fund to restore funding for the administrative costs related to exempting live-in caretakers from the Medicaid electronic visit verification requirement. This funding will cover increased costs for the fiscal/employer agent and managed care organizations. 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.)
