MR. SPEAKER:

    I move that House Bill 1519 be amended to read as follows:

    Page 1, between the enacting clause and line 1, begin a new paragraph and insert:

SECTION 1. [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2005] (a) Before July 1, 2006,
the office of Medicaid policy and planning shall adopt rules under
IC 4- 22- 2 that define the criteria and process used by the office of
Medicaid policy and planning to determine if a developmentally
disabled individual (as defined in IC 12- 7- 2- 62) qualifies for the
level of care provided by an intermediate care facility for the
mentally retarded (ICF/MR). The rules must provide that a
developmentally disabled individual (as defined in IC 12- 7- 2- 62)
qualifies for the level of care for an intermediate care facility for

the following areas of major life activities:
    (1) Self- care.
    (2) Understanding and use of language.
    (3) Learning.
    (4) Mobility.

(b) Before July 1, 2006, the office of Medicaid policy and
planning shall adopt rules under IC 4- 22- 2 that define the criteria
and process used by the office of Medicaid policy and planning to
determine the number of hours of care that a developmentally
disabled individual (as defined in IC 12- 7- 2- 62) needs in a
supervised group living setting. The rules must provide that a
developmentally disabled individual (as defined in IC 12- 7- 2- 62) in
the following types of supervised group living settings needs the
following hours of care per resident day:
    (1) Intensive training, six (6) hours.
