Section 5124.29 | Limiting compensation of owners, their relatives, administrators, and resident meals outside facility.
Except as otherwise provided in section 5124.30 of the Revised Code, the department of developmental disabilities, in determining whether an ICF/IID's direct care costs and indirect care costs are allowable, shall place no limit on specific categories of reasonable costs other than compensation of owners, compensation of relatives of owners, and compensation of administrators.
Compensation cost limits for owners and relatives of owners shall be based on compensation costs for individuals who hold comparable positions but who are not owners or relatives of owners, as reported on ICFs/IID's cost reports. As used in this section, "comparable position" means the position that is held by the owner or the owner's relative, if that position is listed separately on the cost report form, or if the position is not listed separately, the group of positions that is listed on the cost report form and that includes the position held by the owner or the owner's relative. In the case of an owner or owner's relative who serves the ICFs/IID in a capacity such as corporate officer, proprietor, or partner for which no comparable position or group of positions is listed on the cost report form, the compensation cost limit shall be based on civil service equivalents and shall be specified in rules adopted under section 5124.03 of the Revised Code.
Compensation cost limits for administrators shall be based on compensation costs for administrators who are not owners or relatives of owners, as reported on ICFs/IID's cost reports. For the purpose of determining an ICF/IID's total per medicaid day payment rate under division (C) of section 5124.15 of the Revised Code, compensation cost limits for administrators of four or more ICFs/IID shall be the same as the limits for administrators of ICFs/IID with one hundred fifty or more beds.
