5165.361 Budget reduction adjustment factor.

It is the general assembly's intent to specify in statute the factor to be used for state fiscal year 2020 and each state fiscal year thereafter (other than the first state fiscal year in a group of consecutive state fiscal years for which a rebasing is conducted) as the budget reduction adjustment factor for the purpose of sections 5165.15, 5165.16, 5165.17, 5165.19, and 5165.21 of the Revised Code. The budget reduction adjustment factor to be used for a state fiscal year shall not exceed the medicare skilled nursing facility market basket index determined for the federal fiscal year that begins during the state fiscal year immediately preceding the state fiscal year for which the budget reduction adjustment factor is being used. If the general assembly fails to specify in statute the factor to be used for a state fiscal year as the budget reduction adjustment factor, the budget reduction adjustment factor shall be zero.
