Prospective payment rate for new contractors.

(1) The department will establish an initial prospective medicaid payment rate for a new contractor as defined under WAC 388-96-026 within sixty days following the new contractor's application and approval for a license to operate the facility under chapter 18.51 RCW.

(b) Assign the new provider the indirect price based rate per RCW 74.46.561(8);
(c) Determine a capital rate once the facility has submitted square footage and facility age information per RCW 74.46.561(5) and the department accepts it; and
(d) Use the facility's available centers for medicare and medicaid date for at least the three quarter period currently being measured by the department to calculate a quality enhancement rate and if no data is available, the department will not pay a quality enhancement.
(3) A prospective payment rate set for all new contractors will be subject to adjustments for economic trends and conditions as authorized and provided in this chapter and in chapter 74.46 RCW.
