(This amendment directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services to inflate the Medicaid Specialized Care Facility rates for one additional year in lieu of the normal annual rebasing. The amendment also sets a process and timeline for the department and stakeholders to examine current data that would typically be used for the rebasing to determine its accuracy for such purpose in order to allow a return to the normal rebasing process after FY 2024. This amendment is language only as the rebasing process would already include inflation.)
