(This amendment provides $1.9 million from the general fund and $5.7 million in federal Medicaid matching funds in the second year to implement a home visiting benefit for pregnant and post-partum women and children at risk of poor health outcomes effective April 1, 2022. The Department of Medical Assistance Services is directed to engage all relevant stakeholders in the development of the benefit and and to pursue the necessary federal approvals. A Medicaid home visiting benefit was originally funded in the 2020 Session but subsequently eliminated due to the revenue impact from the Coronavirus pandemic.)
