"3. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall submit a report outlining the development of the neurobehavioral science unit and the implementation plan for the department's brain injury waiver program. The report shall include costs, explanation of budget neutrality to the Commonwealth, as well as options for eligibility criteria and service array with associated costs. The report shall be submitted to the Chairs of the Senate Finance and Appropriations and House Appropriations Committees by October 1, 2023."


(This amendment directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services to submit a follow up report to its brain injury waiver initiative, which was approved by the 2022 General Assembly. The secondary follow-up report requires the department to present cost and service and eligibility criteria to better inform the 2024 General Assembly and prepare the Commonwealth for implementation of the brain injury waiver program.)
