5124.151 [Effective 9/15/2014] Initial rates for services provided by a new ICF/IID.

(A) The total per medicaid day payment rate determined under section 5124.15 of the Revised Code shall not be the initial rate for ICF/IID services provided by a new ICF/IID. Instead, the initial total per medicaid day payment rate for ICF/IID services provided by a new ICF/IID shall be determined in accordance with this section.

(B) The initial total medicaid day payment rate for ICF/IID services provided by a new ICF/IID in peer group 1 or peer group 2 shall be determined in the following manner:

(1) The initial rate for capital costs shall be determined under section 5124.17 of the Revised Code using the greater of the new ICF/IID's actual inpatient days or an imputed occupancy rate of eighty per cent.

(2) The initial rate for direct care costs shall be determined as follows:

(a) If there are no cost or resident assessment data for the new ICF/IID as necessary to determine a rate under section 5124.19 of the Revised Code, the rate shall be determined as follows:

(i) Determine the median cost per case-mix unit under division (B) of section 5124.19 of the Revised Code for the new ICF/IID's peer group for the calendar year immediately preceding the fiscal year in which the rate will be paid;

(ii) Multiply the amount determined under division (B)(2)(a)(i) of this section by the median annual average case-mix score for the new ICF/IID's peer group for that period;

(iii) Adjust the product determined under division (B)(2)(a)(ii) of this section by the rate of inflation estimated under division (D) of section 5124.19 of the Revised Code.

(b) If the new ICF/IID is a replacement ICF/IID and the ICF/IID or ICFs/IID that are being replaced are in operation immediately before the new ICF/IID opens, the rate shall be the same as the rate for the replaced ICF/IID or ICFs/IID, proportionate to the number of ICF/IID beds in each replaced ICF/IID.

(c) If the new ICF/IID is a replacement ICF/IID and the ICF/IID or ICFs/IID that are being replaced are not in operation immediately before the new ICF/IID opens, the rate shall be determined under division (B)(2)(a) of this section.

(3) The initial rate for indirect care costs shall be the maximum rate for the new ICF/IID's peer group as determined for the fiscal year in accordance with division (C) of section 5124.21 of the Revised Code.

(4) The initial rate for other protected costs shall be one hundred fifteen per cent of the median rate for ICFs/IID determined for the fiscal year under section 5124.23 of the Revised Code.

(C) The initial total medicaid day payment rate for ICF/IID services provided by a new ICF/IID in peer group 3 shall be determined in the following manner:

(1) The initial rate for capital costs shall be $29.61.

(2) The initial rate for direct care costs shall be $264.89.

(3) The initial rate for indirect care costs shall be $59.85.

(4) The initial rate for other protected costs shall be $25.99.

(D)

(1) Except as provided in division (D)(2) of this section, the department shall adjust a new ICF/IID's initial total per medicaid day payment rate determined under this section effective the first day of July, to reflect new rate determinations for all ICFs/IID under this chapter.

(2) If the department accepts, under division (A) of section 5124.101 of the Revised Code, a cost report filed by the provider of a new ICF/IID, the department shall adjust the ICF/IID's initial total per medicaid day payment rate in accordance with divisions (D) and (E) of that section rather than division (D)(1) of this section.
