(A) To the extent, if any, provided for in rules authorized by this section, the total per medicaid day payment rate determined under section 5124.15 of the Revised Code shall not be paid for ICF/IID services that an ICF/IID not designated as an outlier ICF/IID or unit provides to a resident who meets the criteria for admission to a designated outlier ICF/IID or unit, as specified in rules authorized by section 5124.152 of the Revised Code. Instead, the provider of an ICF/IID providing ICF/IID services to such a resident shall be paid each fiscal year a total per medicaid day payment rate that the department shall prospectively determine in accordance with a methodology established in rules authorized by this section.
(B) The director of developmental disabilities may adopt rules under section 5124.03 of the Revised Code to implement this section. The rules may require that an ICF/IID receive authorization from the department before admitting or retaining a resident who meets the criteria for admission to a designated outlier ICF/IID or unit. If the director adopts such rules, the rules shall specify the criteria and procedures the department will apply when granting the authorization.
