Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act. Creates the Community Developmental Disability Services Medicaid Trust Fund consisting of funds paid to the State by the federal government under Title XIX or Title XXI of the Social Security Act for services delivered by community developmental disability services providers. Provides that the Department of Human Services shall reimburse community developmental disability services providers out of the Fund for Medicaid-reimbursed developmental disability services provided to eligible individuals. Repeals the Community Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Services Provider Participation Fee Trust Fund.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 Requires moneys in the Community Developmental Disability Services Medicaid Trust Fund to be used to pay for Medicaid-reimbursed community developmental disability services provided to eligible individuals and chosen by the individual or his or her legal guardian. Once the the individual or his or her legal guardian has chosen a service and the Department of Human Services has approved and initiated that service, requires the Department to make payment to the service provider. Requires the independent service coordination agency and the provider to inform an eligible individual or his or her legal guardian of all available options before a community service is chosen.
House Floor Amendment No. 2 Provides that funds spent under the provisions of the amendatory Act shall not supplant other funds appropriated from the General Revenue Fund for community-based developmental disability services.
