When establishing prospective reimbursement rates during receivership, DSHS must consider:
(1) Court ordered compensation, if any, for the receiver. Receiver compensation may already be available through the:
(a) Return on equity cost center rate, or
(b) Facility administrator salary where the receiver is also the facility's administrator.
(c) In order to satisfy the court order when existing sources of compensation are less than the compensation ordered by the court, DSHS could consider the difference as an additional allowable cost when establishing prospective reimbursement rates.
(2) Start-up costs and costs of repairs, replacements, and additional staff needed for resident health, training, security, and welfare. No additional money will be added to the rate if these costs can be covered through the return on equity cost center rate; and
(3) Any other allowable costs contained in this chapter.
