Representative Danielson called the meeting back to order. Representative Young and Representative Rankin, bill sponsors, presented House Bill 18-1407 to the committee. The bill requires the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) to seek federal approval for a 6.5 percent increase to the reimbursement rate for specific services that are delivered through home- and community-based services waivers. All of the increased funding must be used to increase compensation for direct support professionals. In addition, HCPF must offer enrollment to certain individuals on the waiting list for waiver services. A handout was distributed (Attachment D).
