There is approximately $758 million inspending cuts and approximately $1 billion is expected in state employee concessions. Federal revenue maximization increases spending by $327 million to secure a net benefit of$150 million. The budget is $406.4 million and $57.4 million below the spending cap for FY12 and FY 13 respectively.The Governor also makes a number of new and significant revenue proposals totaling approximately $1.5 billion. This plan includes an across-the-board increase in the state incometax and an elimination of the state’s $500 property tax credit. Governor Malloy does recommend an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for low-income workers. The sales tax rate isincreased to 6.25% and under this proposal will be applied to several new services such as hair cuts, car washes, clothing and footwear under $50, boat services, etc.Some highlights include:o No across-the-board cuts to nonprofit health and human services contracts.o Funds caseload growth and utilization in DSS, DCF, DDS and DMHAS.o Supports expansion of community care through Money Follows the Person (MFP).o Converts Medicaid to an Administrative Services Organization (ASO) model saving $41 million each year.o Reduces the number of separately budgeted state agencies from the current 81 to 57, a 30% reduction. This does not include consolidating any of the state’s health andhuman services agencies.o Increases the Governor’s rescission authority from 5% to 10%.o New bonding dollars in DSS, DCF, DDS and DMHAS.o Proceeds with implementation of Raise the Age.COLA: There is no additional funding recommended for private provider cost of living increases (COLA) in SFY12 or SFY13.*Please note that “current services” includes an inflationary factor. In many instances the Governor recommends holding spending to 2011 levels, therefore not providing additionalfunding in 2012 or 2013 to reflect inflationary costs experienced by providers.

DSS cont’dNew or Expanded Services:• Expand Tobacco Cessation Efforts under Medicaid: Medicaid recipients are at higher risk for tobacco addiction than the general population because low income is a variable stronglyassociated with tobacco use. Under this proposal, tobacco cessation services will be extended to all Medicaid recipients beginning January 1, 2012. Cost: SFY12=$3,750,000;SFY13=$7,500,000; SFY14=$7,725,000• Upgrade DSS' Eligibility Management System: With the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the need to have state systems in place on January 1, 2014, to support the operation ofexchanges, states that streamline and upgrade their Medicaid eligibility systems to provide a simple and seamless enrollment experience for consumers who qualify for Medicaid orwho are shopping for health insurance in the exchanges will be eligible for 90% federal reimbursement. This enhanced reimbursement applies to the design, development andinstallation of automated Medicaid eligibility systems and is unprecedented. Cost: SFY12=$1,556,737; SFY13=$453,016; SFY14=$0• Provide RAP Certificates for New Supportive Housing Units: The proposed capital budget for the upcoming biennium includes $30.0 million in FY 2012 for supportive housinginitiatives under the Department of Economic and Community Development. This option provides half year funding in FY 2013 to cover RAP certificates for 150 units. Cost:SFY12=$0; SFY13=$775,850; SFY14=$1,551,700• Conduct MITA State Self Assessment: In order to improve the effective administration of the Medicaid program and maximize enhanced federal matching funds, this proposalprovides funds to procure consultant services to (1) conduct a MITA (Medicaid Information Technology Architecture) State Self-Assessment and (2) develop an associated MITAstrategic roadmap to outline planned improvements in Medicaid business processes and technology support. This effort is federally reimbursable at a rate of 90%. Cost:SFY12=$500,000; SFY13=$0; SFY14=$0Reductions to Current Services:• Remove Funding for Vacant Positions: Reduction: SFY12=$3,000,000; SFY13=$3,000,000• Remove Rate Add for Nursing Homes: Reduction: SFY12=$68,900,000; SFY13=$95,500,000• Eliminate Funding for Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Grants: Both the Disproportionate Share Medical Emergency Assistance account and the DSH Urban Hospitals inDistressed Municipalities account provide disproportionate share payments to acutecare general hospitals that serve a large number of low income patients, such as people on Medicaidand the uninsured. These payments are in addition to the regular payments hospitals receive for providing inpatient care to Medicaid beneficiaries. As a result of the recent Medicaidexpansion to low income adults (LIA), hospitals are receiving more than triple the funding that they received under SAGA. Reduction: SFY12=$83,275,000; SFY13=$83,275,000• Reverse Recent Change to Marital Asset Exemption for Community Spouses: Legislation from last session requires that the spouse of someone in an institution who remains in thecommunity be allowed to receive the maximum amount of assets allowed by federal law. Prior to that, non-institutionalized spouses were allowed to keep the home, one car and onehalfof the couple's assets. Under this proposal, the state's prior asset exemption of 50% of liquid marital assets, capped at $109,560, would be reinstated. Reduction:SFY12=$29,300,000; SFY13=$32,000,000• Suspend Cost of Living Adjustments for Clients on Public Assistance: This proposal eliminates standard increases for the biennium for recipients of Temporary Family Assistance,SAGA and the Aid to the Aged, Blind and Disabled programs. Reduction: SFY12=$6,311,149; SFY13=$12,517,317• Reduce Non-Emergency Dental Services for Adults under Medicaid: changes will be made to the current dental benefits for adults that will reduce the overall program expenditureswhile maintaining services that will prevent further disease, unnecessary emergency department use and maintain appropriate oral health. Changes include limiting adult periodicexams, cleanings and bitewing x-rays to once per year for healthy adults. Reduction: SFY12=$9,800,000; SFY13=$10,300,000• Impose Cost‐Sharing Requirements on Certain Individuals Receiving Medicaid Services: DSS will require co-pays of up to $3.00, not to exceed 5% of family income on allowablemedical services (excluding hospital inpatient, emergency room, home health, laboratory and transportation services). Under federal rules, co-pays for FFY 2011 can range from $0.65to $3.65, depending on the cost of the service. Consistent with federal rules, certain children under age 18, individuals at or below 100% of the federal poverty level, SSI recipients,pregnant women, women being treated for breast or cervical cancer and persons in institutional settings are exempt from the cost sharing requirement. Reduction:SFY12=$8,250,000; SFY13=$9,450,000• Remove Rate Add for Boarding Homes: Current law also requires rates for residential care homes to be increased an additional 2% on top of inflation. This proposal eliminates the rateincreases that have been included in the current services budget for boarding homes. Reduction: SFY12=$4,913,749; SFY13=$8,550,4253


DSS cont’d• Strengthen Fraud Recovery Efforts: This proposal will result in savings by strengthening fraud recovery efforts in the Child Care (Care4Kids) program, the Personal Care Assistancewaiver under Medicaid and in the Third Party Liability Unit. Six positions will be added to expand department oversight, investigate fraud and increase recoveries. Reduction:SFY12=$3,646,408; SFY13=$7,628,729• Implement an Alternative Benefit Package and Other Programmatic Changes under the Medicaid Low Income Adult Program: To address the significant growth in the new coveragegroup for low-income adults (LIA) under Medicaid - well beyond budgeted levels - this option reflects savings associated with the implementation of an alternative benefit package,rate changes, targeted co-pays and other initiatives. Reduction: SFY12=$3,000,000; SFY13=$6,500,000• Delay Coverage of Medical Interpreters through an Administrative Process: DSS will delay implementation until FY 2014. When implemented, services will be provided from onecentralized vendor. Reduction: SFY12=$6,000,000; SFY13=$6,000,000• Increase Cost Sharing under the State‐Funded Connecticut Home Care Program: In 2010, the legislature reduced cost-sharing from 15% to 6%. Under this proposal, the cost sharingrequirement will be returned to 15%. Reduction: SFY12=$5,510,000; SFY13=$5,750,000• Allow Administration of Medication by Unlicensed Certified Providers: Currently, only nurses may administer medication in community settings. Under this proposal, speciallytrained and qualified home health aides will be allowed to administer oral and topical medications and eye drops. Nurses will still be required to administer all injections. Reduction:SFY12=$1,840,000; SFY13=$4,180,000• Remove Rate Add for Intermediate Care Facilities: To comply with DSS' regulations, the current services budget includes a 3.0% increase in both FY2012 and FY 2013 forIntermediate Care Facilities for those with developmental disabilities based on the anticipated increase in the gross national product (GNP) deflator.

Reduction: SFY12=$1,900,000; SFY13=$3,900,000• Eliminate Funding for Nurturing Families Network at Non-Hospital Sites: This proposal eliminates funding at non-hospital sites in New Haven and Hartford. Services will continue tobe provided at all 29 birthing hospitals throughout the state, including hospitals in New Haven and Hartford.

In the following accounts, a portionof programs or services will be eliminated: Services to the Elderly, Services to Persons with Disabilities, Housing/Homeless Services, Day Care Projects and Community Services.Reduction: SFY12=$2,454,557; SFY13=$2,454,557• Revise Medicare Part D Co‐payment Requirements for Dually Eligible Clients: Currently, persons dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid are responsible for paying up to $15 permonth in Medicare co-pays for Part D-covered drugs. Under this proposal, dually eligible clients will be responsible for paying up to $25 per month in Medicare co-pays for Part D-covered drugs. Reduction: SFY12=$2,200,000; SFY13=$2,300,000• Reduce the Number Served under the HIV/AIDS Waiver: This proposal reduces the number to be served under the waiver from 100 to 50. Reduction: SFY12=$700,000;SFY13=$2,160,000• Freeze Intake on Category 1 of the State-Funded Connecticut Home Care Program: Category 1 is targeted to individuals who are at risk of hospitalization or short-term nursing facilityplacement if preventive home care services are not provided. While this proposal does not impact existing clients, DSS has identified a new opportunity under the 1915(i) waiver thatwill allow the department to transfer dually eligible clients under the state-funded program who do not meet the functional requirements for the home care waiver program to Medicaidand claim reimbursement. Reduction: SFY12=$1,800,000; SFY13=$2,100,000• Reduce Funding to Non‐Entitlement Accounts: This proposal reduces funding for the following non-entitlement accounts by 10%: Safety Net Services, Employment Opportunities,Human Service Infrastructure Community Action Program and Teen Pregnancy Prevention.

Reduction: SFY12=$1,723,003; SFY13=$1,723,003• Apply Annual Social Security Increases to Offset Costs under the Aid to the Aged, Blind and Disabled (AABD) Program: As a result of a legislative change effective FY 2006, AABDclients retain their Social Security COLA (by increasing the unearned income disregard) without a concurrent reduction in their state benefit. This proposal reinstitutes the previouspolicy of applying any federal COLA to offset the cost of care. Reduction: SFY12=$458,684; SFY13=$1,680,790• Remove Funding for Legislative Earmarks: New or additional funding included in recent years for Citizenship Training, After School Programs, Senior Center Initiative Projects andTeen Pregnancy Prevention will be eliminated. Reduction: SFY12=$1,050,000; SFY13=$1,050,0004


DSS cont’d• Restrict Vision Services for Adults under Medicaid: Coverage of eyeglasses will be reduced to no more than one pair every other year. To comply with federal rules, the currentbenefit will continue to be provided to all children under the age of 21 under the HUSKY A program. Reduction: SFY12=$825,000; SFY13=$950,000• Implement Pharmacy Integrated Behavioral Health Prescribing Intervention Pilot: Under this proposal, the ASO for the Behavioral Health Partnership will implement a pharmacyintervention demonstration project, utilizing a progressive intervention strategy.

Reduction: SFY12=$350,000;SFY13=$700,000• Reduce Benefits under the State-Funded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program: State-funded SNAP provides benefits for non-citizens who are ineligible for federal SNAP.

Reduction: SFY12=$478,036; SFY13=$675,322• Eliminate State Funding for AIDS Drug Assistance Account: The Connecticut AIDS Drug Assistance Program (CADAP) covers the cost of federally approved HIV antiretroviraldrugs and drugs which prevent opportunistic infections associated with HIV/AIDS and is primarily funded with federal Ryan White Title II funds. The state account supplements thisfunding, but is not needed to cover program expenditures given the level of federal funding available. Additionally, due to significant growth in the new coverage group for lowincomeadults (LIA), it is expected that many individuals who had been served under CADAP are now eligible for full medical coverage under LIA. Reduction: SFY12=$606,678;SFY13=$606,678• Eliminate State Funds for Fatherhood Initiative: In September 2006, DSS received a five-year federal grant totaling $5 million for the Fatherhood Initiative. DSS has a federal matchrequirement of approximately $195,000 per year. This match requirement ends after September 2011. This proposal eliminates state funds for the program for the remainder of FY2012 and all of FY 2013, as there will be no federal requirement to maintain the match for the program. Reduction: SFY12=$146,250; SFY13=$195,000• Eliminate Funding for Safe Harbor Respite Home: Safe Harbor Respite is a new program under the jurisdiction of DCF that was proposed by the legislature to fund a group home foradolescent girls (ages 13-17) who are experiencing problems living at home.

Under this proposal, the remaining balance will be eliminated. Reduction: SFY12=$105,717; SFY13=$105,717• Reduce State Funding for Independent Living Centers: There are five independent living centers, which are non-residential, nonprofit agencies that provide an array of services forpersons with disabilities. In addition to the core state funding, each of the five centers is expected to receive approximately $210,000 annually in direct funds from the federalRehabilitation Services Administration and through other federal dollars that flow through DSS to the centers. Under this proposal, state funding for the independent living centers isreduced by 15%. Reduction: SFY12=$96,589; SFY13=$96,589Revenues:• Restructure Nursing Home User Fee: Federal rules allow for user fees to not exceed 5.5% of provider revenue through 9/30/11, increasing to 6% thereafter. This proposal increases theuser fee to maximize revenue to the state. The revenue gained from the user fee assessment will be returned to the nursing homes in the form of increased Medicaid rates as well asany federal dollars gained from that initial federal claiming. When fully annualized in FY 2013, nursing homes will be assessed an additional user fee of $34.3 million while realizinga Medicaid rate increase of $51.5 million. This proposal will result in a net gain to the state of $8.5 million when fully annualized in FY 2013. Total: SFY12=$42,700,000;SFY13=$51,500,000• Implement ICF/MR User Fee: Under this proposal, the user fee will be extended to both private and public intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded (ICF/MRs).

When fully annualized in FY 2013, private ICF/MRs will be assessed a user fee of $3.9 million while realizing a Medicaid rate increase of $5.8 million. Total: $4,100,000;SFY13=$5,800,000Reallocations/Transfers:• Restructure State Government: The Commission on the Deaf and Hearing Impaired and certain functions from the Board of Education and Services for the Blind will be consolidatedwithin DSS. Funding for the Commission on the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, including five full-time positions and approximately 40 part-time interpreter positions, and funding forthe Board of Education and Services for the Blind, including 58 full-time positions, will be transferred to DSS. Transfer: SFY12=$7,574,188; SFY13=$7,448,286• Transfer Funds from Judicial Department's Court Support Services Division (CSSD) to DSS: Funds will be transferred from CSSD to DSS for the PointIn Time HomelessnessCount, which is a statewide standardized and coordinated census of homelessness. Transfer: SFY12=$10,000; SFY13=$10,0005


DSS cont’d• Transfer the Child Day Care Program to the State Department of Education (SDE): SDE already provides funding for child day care center slots under the School Readiness program.Under this proposal, SDE will develop a framework to expand the School Readiness program to include the slots that will be transferred. Transfer: SFY12=-$16,445,153; SFY13=-$16,442,252• Reallocate School Readiness Funding in the Child Care Quality Enhancements Account to State Department of Education: Currently, DSS transfers funds to the State Department ofEducation for enhancement grants for SDE's School Readiness Program. Under this proposal, these funds will be moved to SDE to reduce fund transfers between agencies. The grantwill continue to fund quality initiatives under the SDE School Readiness program. Transfer: SFY12=-$1,158,608; SFY13=-$1,158,608• Transfer Funds to Support Waiver Slots under Mental Health Waiver: Funds will be transferred from Medicaid to DMHAS to support 30 additional waiver slots for diversion.Transfer: SFY12=-$489,000; SFY13=-$1,026,000DEPARTMENT ON AGING:Total - All Funds Net, Governor’s Recommendation (includes Federal, bond, private funds)SFY12=$0; SFY13=$0Line Item 2010-2011Estimated2011-2012CurrentServices2011-2012Governor’sRecommended2012-2013CurrentServices2012-2013Governor’sRecommendedPersonal Services 0 317,072 0 306,672Other Expenses 0 118,250 0 121,932 0Equipment 2 6,200 0 3,598• The establishment of the Department of Aging is delayed until July 1, 2013DEPARTMENT OF MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTION SERVICES:Total – All Funds Net, Governor’s Recommendation (includes Federal, bond, private funds)SFY12=$819,099,357; SFY13=$831,765,621Line Item 2010-2011Estimated2011-2012CurrentServices2011-2012Governor’sRecommended2012-2013CurrentServices2012-2013Governor’sRecommendedHousing Supports & Services 13,424,867 14,015,561 14,424,867 14,604,215 14,987,367Next Steps Supportive Housing 1,000,000 1,044,000 0 1,087,848 0General Assistance162,146,032 191,599,610 182,485,221 214,644,578 195,756,101Managed CareYoung Adult Services 54,374,159 62,605,377 61,307,178 68,065,063 65,271,066Legal Services 539,269 552,751 539,269 569,886 539,269TBI Community Services 9,402,612 12,093,137 11,715,956 14,017,501 13,211,421Jail Diversion 4,426,568 4,731,045 0 4,780,712 0Prison Overcrowding 6,231,683 6,647,743 0 6,831,084 0Medicaid Adult Rehab.
