represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Public Aid Code is amended by
changing Section 5-5.1 as follows:
    (305 ILCS 5/5-5.1)  (from Ch. 23, par. 5-5.1)
    Sec. 5-5.1. Grouping of Facilities. The Department of
Healthcare and Family Services shall, for purposes of payment,
provide for groupings of nursing facilities. Factors to be
considered in grouping facilities may include, but are not
limited to, size, age, patient mix, percentage of Medicaid
funded residents, or geographical area.
    The groupings developed under this Section shall be
considered in determining reasonable cost reimbursement
formulas. However, this Section shall not preclude the
Department from recognizing and evaluating the cost of capital
on a facility-by-facility basis.
    A resident of a nursing facility whose application for long
term care benefits is awaiting final action shall be included
in the calculation as a Medicaid funded resident.
