maximum compensation of a full-time (40 hours per week) licensed administrator
to a nursing facility may be allowable at the lower of compensation actually
received or the maximum allowable administrator compensation amount determined
annually using the calculation in section (4) of this rule.
(2) The maximum compensation of not more than
one full-time (40 hours per week) assistant administrator to a nursing facility
with at least 80 licensed beds may be allowable at the lower of compensation
actually received or seventy-five percent of the allowable administrator
compensation for the number of licensed beds in the nursing facility. The
Department will not allow the cost of an assistant administrator in a facility
with less than 80 beds.
either of the above individuals works less than 40 hours in the average week,
allowable compensation must be the lower of actual compensation received or the
maximum allowable administrator compensation determined annually based on the
calculation in section (4) of this rule, multiplied by the percentage of 40
hours worked in the average week. The provider must maintain adequate records
to demonstrate time actually spent.
(4) The maximum allowable administrator
compensation may be adjusted each year and will be effective as of January 1
each year. The rates must be established using the gross allowable compensation
in Account 411 (Administrator Compensation) of the Nursing Facility Financial
Statement for non-owner administrators. The applicable compensation amounts
will be inflated by the U.S. CPI from the mid point of each facility's fiscal
year to July 1. The 75th percentile of each bed-size category, 1-49, 50-79,
80-99, 100 and over, will be the ceiling for each grouping.
(5) When a single individual serves as the
administrator of both a nursing facility and a hospital, the salary will be
pro-rated to both functions. The nursing facility portion will then be compared
to the pro-rated share of the allowable administrator compensation to determine
the amount to be included as allowable.
