Billing/payment.

(1) The department will pay nursing facility (NF) contractors for the first day of a medicaid resident's stay but not the last day.
(2) The department will pay a contractor for service rendered under the facility contract and billed in accordance with the department's billing procedure. The amount paid will be computed using the appropriate rates assigned to the contractor. For each recipient, the department will pay an amount equal to the appropriate rates, multiplied by the number of medicaid resident days each rate was in effect, less the amount the recipient is required to pay for his or her care as set forth by WAC 388-96-803.
(3) A NF contractor shall not bill the department for service provided to a medicaid recipient until an award letter of eligibility for the recipient under rules established under the authority of chapter 74.09 RCW has been received by the facility. However a facility may bill and shall be reimbursed for all medical care recipients referred to the facility by the department prior to the receipt of the award letter of eligibility or the denial of such eligibility.
