 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Human Services)
 It is estimated that this legislation would increase the Department of Human Services' expenditures by at least $15 million. This legislation would require administrative rule changes and approval, along with policy and procedure changes that are significantly time intensive. Submission of a State plan amendment would be required and receipt of federal matching funds would be contingent on CMS approval.
