9 CSR 45-4.020 - Development of Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities

Current through Register Vol. 46, No. 24, December 15, 2021

PURPOSE: This amendment updates the rule to mirror language used in 42 C.F.R. sections 442.100-442.11 9 , 483.400-483.480, and 440.150, for the certification of Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID). Additionally, this amendment updates the rule to mirror section 633.220, RSMo Supp. 2013, which replaced the term "mental retardation" with the more current terminology of "developmental disability."

(1) As used in this rule, a provider that owns, operates or has interest in only one (1) intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IID) is-
(A) A sole proprietor that owns no interest in another ICF/IID;
(B) A partnership or a majority of the partnership that owns no interest in another ICF/IID; or
(C) A corporation that has neither any officers nor a majority of board members in common with another corporation which has any interest in an ICF/IID.
(2) Any entity intending to operate a Medicaid-reimbursed ICF/IID in excess of those beds in existence on May 29, 1991, shall give written notice of that intent to the Department of Mental Health's Division of Developmental Disabilities (Division of DD) between July 1 and October 1 of the fiscal year preceding the fiscal year in which the provider intends to operate the ICF/IID.
(3) No provider may be reimbursed under Medicaid to operate an ICF/IID without a provider agreement issued by the Department of Social Services' MO HealthNet Division (MHD). The MHD shall not issue a provider agreement without receiving either a certificate of authorization or an acknowledgment of exemption from the Division of DD.
(4) After May 29, 1991, the Division of DD shall issue an acknowledgment of exemption to permit the MHD to issue a provider agreement to a certified ICF/IID if-
(A) The ICF/IID will have six (6) or fewer beds;
(B) The provider does not own, operate or have any interest in any other ICF/IID; and
(C) The provider has notified the Division of DD between July 1 and October 1 of its intent to operate the ICF/IID during the next fiscal year.
(5) Any provider that has received an exemption under section (4) and then either obtains, operates, or acquires an interest in any other Medicaid-enrolled ICF/IID, or seeks to enroll an additional ICF/IID in the Medicaid program, shall forfeit the exemption granted under section (4). As soon as the ICF/IID for which exemption was originally granted can be accommodated in the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver Program, the Division of DD shall notify the MHD to that effect, and MHD shall terminate the ICF/IID provider agreement within thirty (30) days after receipt of the notification from the Division of DD.
(6) After May 29, 1991, the Division of DD may issue a certificate of authorization to permit the MHD to issue a provider agreement for a provider to operate an ICF/IID of seven (7) or more beds if-
(A) The proposed ICF/IID is to be a free-standing facility and not attached to any other existing ICF/IID;
(B) The provider has notified the Division of DD between July 1 and October 1 of its intent to operate the ICF/IID during the next fiscal year; and
(C) The ICF/IID cannot be accommodated within the federal Home and Community-Based Waiver Program for persons with developmental disabilities as determined by the Division of DD.
