(This amendment restores $12.9 million the second year from the general fund to fund half the increase in provider rates for services provided through the current Medicaid Developmental Disability Waiver programs using updated data, 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 COVID-19 pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget for the Special Session. A separate amendment funds the remaining half of the provider rate increase contingent on additional revenues above the forecast.)
