SR 352, a resolution introduced by Sen. Brooks that directs the Joint State Government Commission (JSGC) to study and issue a report on the specific data, calculations, and mechanisms that the Department of Human Services uses to determine the amount of Medical Assistance capitation funding ultimately paid to drug and alcohol addiction treatment providers within the Commonwealth, was adopted by the Senate on Tuesday, 49-0.
SR 352 directs JSGC to issue a report of its findings, along with any statutory or regulatory recommendations, within seven months of the adoption of the resolution.
JSGC serves as the bipartisan and bicameral research agency of the General Assembly. It provides the legislation with a readily available mechanism for conducting interdisciplinary studies.
