Department of Medical Assistance Services FY2023 $0 FY2024 $796,672 GF

Page 355, line 40, strike "$22,919,178,986" and insert "$22,920,809,383".

Page 384, after line 31, insert:

"YYYY. Effective, July 1, 2023, the Department of Medical Assistance Services shall increase reimbursement rates for adult day health services provided through Medicaid home- and community-based waiver programs by 24 percent.  The department shall have the authority to implement this reimbursement change effective July 1, 2019, and prior to the completion of any regulatory process undertaken in order to effect such change."


(This amendment adds $796,672 from the general fund and $833,725 from the nongeneral fund to increase adult day health care rates by 24 percent bring the rate from $64.17 to $79.57 per day for the rest of the state and $69.30 to $85.93 in Northern Virginia. This would help address increases in minimum wages, shortage of caregivers, and inflationary increases in operational costs. Adult day health care is much less expensive than alternative care in a nursing facility for which these clients qualify.)
