WAC 388-96-505

Offset of miscellaneous revenues.

(1) The methodology in (a) through (d) of this subsection is effective for services provided on or before June 30, 2016.
(a) The contractor must reduce allowable costs whenever the item, service, or activity covered by such costs generates revenue or financial benefits (such as purchase discounts, refunds of allowable costs or rebates) other than through the contractor's normal billing for care services. However, the department must not deduct from the allowable costs of a nonprofit facility unrestricted grants, gifts, and endowments, and interest therefrom.
(b) The contractor must reduce allowable costs for hold-bed revenue in the support services, operations, and property rate components only. In the support services rate component, the amount of reduction must be determined by dividing a facility's allowable housekeeping costs by total adjusted patient days and multiplying the result by total hold-room days. In the operations rate component, the amount of the reduction must be determined by dividing a facility's allowable operation costs by total adjusted patient days and multiplying the result by total hold-room days. In the property rate component, the amount of reduction must be determined by dividing allowable property costs by the total adjusted patient days and multiplying the result by total hold-room days.
(c) Where goods or services are sold, the amount of the reduction is the actual cost relating to the item, service, or activity. In the absence of adequate documentation of cost, the amount of the reduction is the full amount of the revenue received. Where financial benefits such as purchase discounts, refunds of allowable costs, or rebates are received, the amount of the reduction is the amount of the discount or rebate. Financial benefits such as purchase discounts, refunds of allowable costs and rebates, including industrial insurance rebates, must be offset against allowable costs in the year the contractor actually receives the benefits.
(d) Only allowable costs may be recovered under this subsection. Costs allocable to activities or services not included in nursing facility services (such as costs of vending machines and services specified in chapter 388-86 WAC not included in nursing facility services) are nonallowable costs.
(2) The methodology in (a) through (d) of this subsection is effective for services provided on or after July 1, 2016.
(a) The contractor must reduce allowable costs whenever the item, service, or activity covered by such costs generates revenue or financial benefits (such as purchase discounts, refunds of allowable costs, or rebates) other than through the contractor's normal billing for care services. However, the department must not deduct from the allowable costs of a nonprofit facility unrestricted grants, gifts, and endowments, and interest therefrom.
(b) The contractor must reduce allowable costs for hold-bed revenue in the indirect care rate component only. The amount of reduction must be determined by dividing a facility's allowable housekeeping costs by total adjusted patient days and multiplying the result by total hold-room days.
(c) Where goods or services are sold, the amount of the reduction is the actual cost relating to the item, service, or activity. In the absence of adequate documentation of cost, the amount of the reduction is the full amount of the revenue received. Where financial benefits such as purchase discounts, refunds of allowable costs, or rebates are received, the amount of the reduction is the amount of the discount or rebate. Financial benefits such as purchase discounts, refunds of allowable costs, and rebates, including industrial insurance rebates, must be offset against allowable costs in the year the contractor actually receives the benefits.
(d) Only allowable costs may be recovered under this subsection. Costs allocable to activities or services not included in nursing facility services (such as costs of vending machines and services specified in chapter 388-86 WAC not included in nursing facility services) are nonallowable costs.
