Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Medical Assistance Article and the Long-Term Care Provider Funding Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code. Requires the revised methodology for reimbursement of nursing facility services to be based on the Resource Utilization Group methodology (RUGs) and to incorporate patient acuity, patient health outcomes, and measures of quality and quality improvement for the determination of payment. Removes language concerning rates that took effect April 1, 2011 and language concerning enhanced payments. Removes language concerning payment increases for the MDS methodology, exceptional care residents, or the socio-development established by Public Act 96-1530. Provides how licensed bed days shall be computed. Provides that beginning July 1, 2011 an assessment is imposed upon each long-term care provider in an amount equal to $2.04 (rather than $6.07) times the number of licensed (rather than occupied) bed days due and payable each month. Provides that assessments imposed on long-term care providers in excess of $1.50 per licensed bed day effective prior to July 1, 2011 shall not be due and payable until after the Department of Healthcare and Family Services notifies the long-term care providers, in writing, that the assessment is deemed permissible and certain waivers have been granted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Provides that the assessment shall not take effect or shall cease to be imposed, and any moneys remaining in the Long-Term Care Provider Fund shall be refunded to long-term care providers in proportion to the amounts paid by them, if certain conditions exist. Repeals the Nursing Home Licensing Fee Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code. Effective immediately.
