PUB AID-MEDICAID NURSING HOME
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Makes a technical change in
a Section concerning the purpose of the "Medicaid" Article.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Deletes reference to:
305 ILCS 5/5-1
Adds reference to:
305 ILCS 5/5-5.4
Deletes everything. Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Deletes
a provision for annual Medicaid nursing home rate increases in 1984
and thereafter. Provides that the Department of Public Aid must
implement a new Medicaid payment methodology for the nursing component
of the nursing home rate effective July 1, 2003, using the Minimum
Data Set (MDS). Provides for up to a 2-year period of transition to
the new methodology. Provides that for a facility that would receive
a lower nursing component rate per patient day under the new system
than the facility received effective on the date immediately preceding
the date that the Department implements the new payment methodology,
the rate per patient for the facility shall be held at the level in
effect on that prior date until a higher rate of reimbursement is
achieved by that facility. Provides that for a facility that would
receive a higher rate, the rate shall be adjusted. Makes rate
adjustments subject to appropriations.
FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Illinois Department of Public Aid)
As this language provides that rates are subject to appropria-
tion, this bill has no fiscal impact.
BALANCED BUDGET NOTE, H-AM 1 (Bureau of the Budget)
Since this bill is not a supplemental appropriation bill, the
Balanced Budget Note Act is inapplicable.
STATE DEBT NOTE, H-AM 1 (Economic and Fiscal Commission)
This legislation would not change the amount of authorization
for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and,
therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.
STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1
(Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)
In the opinion of DCCA, HB5567 (H-am 1) does not create a State
mandate under the State Mandates Act. A subsequent rulemaking
by the Department of Public Aid would be subject to review when
the rules are proposed.
