S.F. No. 2325 - Nursing Facilities Requirements Modifications (As Amended by the Author’s A-1 Amendment)
 
Author: Senator Matt Schmit
 
Prepared By: Liam Monahan, Senate Analyst (651/296-1791)
 
Date: April 12, 2016



 

Section 1 (144.071, subd. 4cParagraph (a), clause (5),  moves a consolidation rate adjustment  for a facility in Steele County from the facility’s property rate to its external fixed costs.  It does not change the rate.  This amendment is effective for the rate year beginning January 1, 2017.

Clause (6) moves a consolidation rate adjustment  for a facility in Goodhue County from the facility’s property rate to its external fixed costs.  Because the number of delicensed beds is also changed, the rate calculation is also changed to make it budget neutral.  This amendment is effective January 1, 2017, or upon completion of the consolidation project, whichever is later.

Section 2 (144A.071, subd. 4d) moves the consolidation rate adjustments for facility consolidations from the property rate to the external fixed costs.

Section 3 (256B.441, subd. 13) and Section 4 (256.441, subd. 53) add the consolidation rate adjustments to the external fixed cost category and to the calculation of the external fixed payment rate.
