Or. Admin. R. 411-070-0045 - Facility Payments

(1) PRIOR AUTHORIZATION. The Department may reimburse a nursing facility for services provided to a Department resident only if prior authorized after the Department has participated in development of the placement plan and is satisfied that the placement is justified and most suitable for the person according to the Department care plan. The Department may not reimburse a nursing facility for services rendered prior to the date of referral to the Department. A nursing facility must verify that the local SPD/Type B AAA where the facility is located is involved in the placement.
(2) The facility must confirm an individual's financial eligibility for Medicaid payment of any nursing facility service with the local office. Medicaid eligibility is based on the requirements outlined in OAR chapter 461. The facility is responsible for collecting resident liability from the resident or their responsible party.
(3) PAYMENT TO PROVIDER. Provider payments will be made following the month of service. For billing, the Department will mail Form SDS 483, Invoice and Payment Authorization, to each facility.
(4) RESIDENT'S INCOME. A resident's income, exclusive of the authorized allowance for personal incidental needs and other prior authorized special needs, will be offset as a credit against the established Department rate paid to that facility.
(5) REDUCED PAYMENT FOR ABUSE.
(a) If abuse of a resident, according to the provisions of ORS 441.630 to 441.685, is substantiated by the Department, the Department may reduce the payment for the resident(s) for the month the abuse occurred, and until such time as the Department determines the conditions leading to the abuse have been corrected.
(A) The facility will receive payment for services provided for the resident as determined by the Department. This determination will be based on the absence of appropriate services that resulted in the substantiated abuse of a resident.
(B) The reduced payment may not be considered a reduction in benefits for the resident.
(b) The Department will notify the facility by certified mail at least 15 days prior to taking action to reduce payment.
(A) The notice will include the basis of the Department decision, the effective date of the reduced payment, the amount of the reduced payment, and will advise the facility of their right to request review by the Assistant Director if such request is made in writing within 30 days of the receipt of the notice.
(B) If a request for review is made, the Assistant Director will include the basis of the Department decision, the effective date of the reduced review and all material relating to the allegation of resident abuse and to the reduction in payment. The Assistant Director will include the basis of the Department decision, the effective date of the reduced determination, based upon review of the material, whether or not to sustain the decision to reduce payments to the facility and will notify the facility of the decision within 20 days of receiving the request for review.
(C) If the Assistant Director determines not to sustain the decision to reduce payments, the reduction will be lifted immediately. Otherwise, the reduction in payment will remain in effect until the Department determines the conditions leading to the abuse have been corrected.
(D) If the decision to reduce payment is sustained, the payment reduction will not be recovered in the year end settlement.
