Item 304 #25s

Health and Human Resources
Department of Medical Assistance Services


Page 379, Line 11 after “funding.” insert:

"VBP funding shall be adjusted from the second year to the third year of the program by the Medicaid Virginia Nursing Home Inflation Index, and annually thereafter."


(This amendment inflates the Medicaid Nursing Facility Value Based Program funding for FY 2025 using the FY 2024 appropriation and the Medicaid Virginia Nursing Home Inflation Index (the same factor used to inflate operating rates annually), and each year thereafter using the prior year as the base. Because this does not impact funding until FY 2025, this amendment is language only in the current biennium.)
