SB 1123 - This act requires the Division of Medical Services to annually recalculate the Medicaid nursing home reimbursement amount. Medicaid rates shall be recalculated for all Missouri facilities over three state fiscal years in three separate payments beginning July 1, 2004. The Department shall recalculate the class ceilings for patient care (120% of the median), ancillary (120% of the median), and administration (110% of the median), with each facility receiving one-third of the unpaid amount.
For July 1, 2004, the Department, using the adjusted costs in the Medicaid cost report for the fiscal year ending in 2001, shall redetermine the allowable per patient day costs for each facility. Each facility shall receive a rate increase of 1/3 the amount that is underpaid. For July 1, 2005, the Department shall perform the same calculations, but shall use the adjusted costs for the fiscal year ending in 2002. For July 1, 2006, the Department shall perform the same calculations using the adjusted costs for the fiscal year ending in 2003. For July 1, 2007, each facility shall receive a full recalculation based upon its 2004 Medicaid cost report of adjusted costs.
This act shall take effect on July 1, 2004.
