The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee reports favorably Senate Bill No. 3144.
This FY 23 supplemental appropriation provides $3.6 million to the Department of Human Services to increase the adult medical day care Medicaid per diem rate by four percent from $86.10 to $89.54. Adult medical day care services provide medically necessary services in an ambulatory care setting to individuals who are nonresidents of the facility, and who, due to their physical or cognitive impairment, require such services to support their community living. The adult medical day care per diem rate was increased from $78.50 to $82 in FY 2021, and from $82 to the current rate in FY 2022. Prior to these increases, the per diem rate was static at $78.50 since FY 2012.
This bill is not certified as requiring a fiscal note.
