Prohibition against double payment.
If any resident of a
nursing facility or ICF/DD is admitted to such
facility on the basis that the charges for such resident's care will be
paid from private funds, and the source of payment for such care thereafter
changes from private funds to payments under this Article, the facility
shall, upon receiving the first such payment under this Article, notify the

as payment for care for which payment also was made under this Article.
