317:30-5-131.Rates of payments
[Revised 07-01-07]
(a) Rates of payments shown on the Fee Schedule for Nursing Facilities and ICF/MR's are based on the cost of the nursing facility level of care provided and the nursing care staffing pattern. The rate of payment to a nursing facility is also determined by the type of facility and quality of care rating.
(b) A rate of payment established by the facility for private patients is not under the jurisdiction of OHCA. A facility must establish and maintain identical policies and practices regarding transfer, discharge, and the provision of services under the State Plan for all individuals regardless of source of payment. The facility may charge any amount for services furnished to non-Medicaid residents consistent with the written notice requirements describing the charges found at 42 CFR 483.10.
