(b) When an individual is certified as eligible for SoonerCare coverage of long-term care, he or she is also eligible for other SoonerCare services. ADvantage waiver members do not have a copayment for ADvantage services except for prescription drugs. For members residing in an ADvantage assisted living center, any income beyond one-hundred and fifty percent (150%) of the federal benefit rate is available to defray the cost of the assisted living services received. The member is responsible for payment to the assisted living services center provider for days of service, from the first day of each full-month in which services were received, until the vendor pay obligation is met. When an individual is aged, blind, or disabled and is determined eligible for long-term care, a separate eligibility determination must be made for QMBP or SLMB benefits. An ADvantage program member may reside in a licensed assisted living services center only when the assisted living services center is a certified ADvantage assisted living services center provider from whom the member is receiving ADvantage assisted living services.
