Program changes in the 2003 legislatively adopted budget

  • Funding continues for long-term care services for people in survival priority levels 1 through 11, and is restored for long-term care services for people at levels 12 and 13. Levels 12 through 17 had been eliminated in early 2003 to meet budget reductions required for House Bill 5100.
  • Partial restoration of the General Assistance program eliminated in February 2003 as a result of House Bill 5100. The revamped program will provide a cash grant to people with disabilities who qualify for federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
  • Funding for Oregon Project Independence (OPI) was restored to $7.6 million. Overall program is $6.1 million less than 2001-03.
  • Funding continues for nursing facilities, residential care facilities and adult foster homes at their 2001-2003 legislatively approved levels. The LAB increases assisted living facilities above that level and allows a cost-of-living increase of 2.6 percent in each year of the biennium.
  • $25.0 million is added in new General Fund needed to implement the collective bargaining agreement between the Home Care Commission and the Service Employees International Union, Local 503.
  • Funding is added for a re-negotiated Staley Agreement for services to people with developmental disabilities.
  • Implementation of a nursing facility tax to be effective February 1, 2004 is anticipated. Other Fund revenue generated through tax collection will be used to provide increases in Medicaid nursing facility rates.
