How is a state facility settlement implemented?

(1) The settlement is implemented in a two-step process consisting of the facility first submitting a proposed preliminary settlement to DSHS and DSHS responding with a final settlement report that it submits to the state facility.
(2) The proposed preliminary settlement must be:
(a) Submitted to DSHS when the state facility submits their cost report.
(b) Responded to by DSHS within one hundred twenty days after they receive it from the state facility. DSHS must verify the accuracy of the facility's proposal and issue a preliminary settlement substantiating the settlement amount.
(3) The final settlement is the preliminary settlement issued by DSHS if an audit is not conducted.
(4) If an audit is conducted, DSHS must submit a final settlement report to the state facility after the audit process is completed. This report must substantiate all disallowed costs, refunds, underpayments, or adjustments to the provider's financial statements, cost report, and final settlement.
