Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(210 ILCS 155/35)
LTAC supplemental per diem rate.
(a) The Department must pay an LTAC supplemental per diem rate calculated under this Section to LTAC hospitals that meet the requirements of Section 15 of this Act for patients:
(1) who upon admission to the LTAC hospital meet LTAC
(2) whose care is primarily paid for by the
Department under Title XIX of the Social Security Act or whose care is primarily paid for by the Department after the patient has exhausted his or her benefits under Medicare.
(b) The Department must not pay the LTAC supplemental per diem rate calculated under this Section if any of the following conditions are met:
(1) the LTAC hospital no longer meets the
requirements under Section 15 of this Act or terminates the agreement specified under Section 15 of this Act;
(2) the patient does not meet the LTAC hospital
criteria upon admission; or
(3) the patient's care is primarily paid for by
Medicare and the patient has not exhausted his or her Medicare benefits, resulting in the Department becoming the primary payer.
(c) The Department may adjust the LTAC supplemental per diem rate calculated under this Section based only on the conditions and requirements described under Section 40 and Section 45 of this Act.
(d) The LTAC supplemental per diem rate shall be calculated using the LTAC hospital's inflated cost per diem, defined in subsection (f) of this Section, and subtracting the following:
(1) The LTAC hospital's Medicaid per diem inpatient
rate as calculated under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.270(c)(4).
(2) The LTAC hospital's disproportionate share (DSH)
rate as calculated under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.120.
(3) The LTAC hospital's Medicaid Percentage
Adjustment (MPA) rate as calculated under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.122.
(4) The LTAC hospital's Medicaid High Volume
Adjustment (MHVA) rate as calculated under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.290(d).
(e) LTAC supplemental per diem rates effective July 1, 2012 shall be the amount in effect as of October 1, 2010. No new hospital may qualify for the program after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly.
(f) For the purposes of this Section, "inflated cost per diem" means the quotient resulting from dividing the hospital's inpatient Medicaid costs by the hospital's Medicaid inpatient days and inflating it to the most current period using methodologies consistent with the calculation of the rates described in paragraphs (2), (3), and (4) of subsection (d). The data is obtained from the LTAC hospital's most recent cost report submitted to the Department as mandated under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.210.
(g) On and after July 1, 2012, the Department shall reduce any rate of reimbursement for services or other payments or alter any methodologies authorized by this Act or the Illinois Public Aid Code to reduce any rate of reimbursement for services or other payments in accordance with Section 5-5e of the Illinois Public Aid Code.
