§ 1187.23. Nursing facility incentives and adjustments
(a) The Department will make minimum occupancy adjustments to encourage nursing facility efficiency and economy associated with nursing facility occupancy levels. If the nursing facility's overall nursing facility occupancy level is below 90%, the Department will make an adjustment to total nursing facility resident days as though the nursing facility were at 90% occupancy. The Department will apply this 90% occupancy adjustment to the administrative cost component and the capital cost center.
(b) The Department will pay a disproportionate share incentive to a nursing facility that has a high overall occupancy and a high proportion of MA residents in accordance with § 1187.111 (relating to disproportionate share incentive payments).(See the first section of this Title for historical and other information)
