METHODOLOGY:

This bill appropriates $5,870,598.16 in FY 2018 and $6,101,839.82 in FY 2019 from the state general fund to the Department of Health and Human Services for the purpose of establishing adequate provider compensation by increasing rates by two percent each fiscal year for persons with developmental disabilities and acquired brain disorders.  The appropriation amounts are based on two percent of the efficiency budget request for the Bureau of Developmental Services in FY 2018 ($293,529,908) and FY 2019 ($305,091,991).  The Department does not yet know how much of the appropriation will be necessary to meet the two percent increase.
