The Governor has approved the request by the Department of Medical Assistance Services to extend the expiration date of the above-referenced emergency regulation for six months as provided for in § 2.2-4011 D of the Code of Virginia. Therefore, the emergency regulation will continue in effect through October 30, 2016. The emergency action conforms the regulation to Item 301 III of Chapter 2 of the 2014 Acts of the Assembly, Special Session I, which authorizes the Department of Medical Assistance Services to establish a 25% higher reimbursement rate, within the intellectual disability waiver program, for congregate residential services for individuals with complex medical or behavioral needs currently residing in an institution and unable to transition to integrated settings in the community due to the need for services that cannot be provided within the maximum allowable rate or for individuals whose needs present imminent risk of institutionalization, and enhanced waiver services are needed beyond those available with the maximum allowable rate. The emergency regulation was published in 31:5 VA.R. 303-311 November 3, 2014 and an erratum correcting the original expiration date was published in 31:9 VA.R. 748 December 29, 2014.
