(This amendment provides $58.3 million from the general fund and $66.1 million from nongeneral funds the second year to increase reimbursement rates by twelve percent for Medicaid personal care, respite, and companionship services provided in agency-directed and consumer-directed waiver programs. The introduced budget proposed a five percent increase and this amendment raises the increase to 12 percent. This would change the consumer-directed rest-of-state rate from $12.70 to $14.22 per hour and the Northern Virginia rate from $16.45 to $18.42 per hour. The agency-directed rate would increase from $18.51 to $20.73 per hour for rest-of-state and from $21.79 to $24.40 per hour in Northern Virginia.)
