Definitions

Unless the context indicates otherwise, the following definitions apply to the rules in OAR chapter 411, division 069:

(1) "Assessment Rate" means the rate established by the Director of the Department of Human Services.

(2) "Assessment Year" means a 12-month period, beginning July 1 and ending the following June 30, for which the assessment rate being determined is to apply.

(3) "Deficiency" means the amount by which the assessment as correctly computed exceeds the assessment, if any, reported by the facility. If, after the original deficiency has been assessed, subsequent information shows the correct amount of assessment to be greater than previously determined, an additional deficiency arises.

(4) "Delinquency" means the facility failed to pay the assessment as correctly computed when the assessment was due.

(5) "Department" means the Department of Human Services.

(6) "Director" means the Director of the Department of Human Services.

(7) "Gross Revenue" means the revenue paid to a long term care facility for patient care, room, board, and services, less contractual adjustments. It does not include:

(a) Revenue derived from sources other than long term care facility operations, including but not limited to donations, interest, guest meals, or any other revenue not attributable to patient care; and

(b) Hospital revenue derived from hospital operations.

(8) "Long Term Care Facility" means a facility with permanent facilities that includes inpatient beds and provides medical services, including nursing services but excluding surgical procedures except as may be permitted by the rules of the Director. A long term care facility provides treatment for two or more unrelated patients and includes licensed skilled nursing facilities and licensed intermediate care facilities, but does not include facilities licensed and operated pursuant to ORS 443.400 to 443.455. A long term care facility does not include any intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded.

(9) "Medicaid Patient Days" means patient days attributable to patients who receive medical assistance under a plan described in 42 U.S.C. 1396a et seq.

(10) "Patient Days" means the total number of patients occupying beds in a long term care facility for all days in the calendar period for which an assessment is being reported and paid. For purposes of this subsection, if a long term care facility patient is admitted and discharged on the same day, the patient shall be deemed to occupy a bed for one day.

(11) "Waivered Long Term Care Facility" means:

(a) A long term care facility operated by a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) that is registered under ORS 101.030 and that admits:

(A) Residents of the CCRC; or

(B) Residents of the CCRC and nonresidents; or

Entities Subject to the Long Term Care Facility Assessment

(1) Each long term care facility in Oregon is subject to the long term care facility assessment except the Oregon Veterans' Home and long term care facilities that have received written notice from the Department that they are exempt under the terms of a waiver. For these facilities, the exemption from the long term care facility assessment only applies for the specific period of time described in the notice from the Department.

(2) The Director shall determine on or before April 1 of each year those long term care facilities that meet the criteria of a waivered long term care facility as defined by OAR 411-069-0000 that are exempt from the long term care facility assessment for the assessment year commencing July 1 of that year.

(3) A long term care facility that believes it meets the criteria of a waivered long term care facility that has not received notice of exempt status or disagrees with the Department's decision, may request an administrative review from the Department.

(a) A request for an administrative review must be sent to: Administrator DHS Budget and Policy Analysis 500 Summer Street NE Salem, OR 97301.

(b) A request for administrative review must be received by the Department by April 15 prior to the assessment year.

(4) Effective January 1, 2014, each long term care facility in Oregon is subject to the long term care facility assessment, except nursing facilities operated by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. A waivered long term care facility as defined in OAR 411-069-0000(11) is no longer exempt from the long term care facility assessment.

Long Term Care Facility Assessment: Calculation, Report, Due Date

(1) The assessment is assessed upon each patient day, including Medicaid patient day, at a long term care facility. The amount of the assessment equals the assessment rate times the number of patient days, including Medicaid patient days, at the long term care facility for the calendar quarter. The current rate of the assessment shall be determined in accordance with these rules.

(2) The facility must pay the assessment and file the report on a form approved by the Department on or before the last day of the month following the end of the calendar quarter for which the assessment is being reported, unless the Department permits a later payment date. If a facility requests an extension, the Department, in its sole discretion, shall determine whether to grant an extension.

(3) Each long term care facility must submit a revenue report on a form prescribed by the Department by September 30 of each year and pay any assessment amount due. Long term care facilities with a Medicaid contract with the Department that provide more than 1,000 Medicaid patient days must submit the nursing facility financial statement (cost report) annually as required by OAR 411-070-0300 which contains the revenue report. Long term care facilities that are not required to submit the annual cost report must submit the revenue report. Either a revenue report or a nursing facility financial statement, where applicable, must be filed by October 31 of each year regardless of whether any additional assessment is owed as a result of that filing.

(4) Revenue reports submitted late are subject to penalty as set forth in OAR 411-069-0080. Nursing facility financial statements submitted late are subject to a penalty as set forth in OAR 411-070-0300, where applicable.

(5) Any assessment amount due based on the cost report or revenue report as a reconciliation of the previously filed quarterly reports must be paid by the due date specified. Payments submitted late are subject to penalty as set forth in OAR 411-069-0080.

(6) Any refund due to the provider based on the cost report or revenue report may be requested in writing with the submission of the report.

(7) Any report, statement, or other document required to be filed under any provision of these rules shall be certified by the chief financial officer of the facility or an individual with delegated authority to sign for the facility's chief financial officer. The certification must attest, based on best knowledge, information, and belief, to the accuracy, completeness, and truthfulness of the document.

(8) Payments may be made electronically and the accompanying report may either be faxed to the Department at the fax number provided on the report form or mailed to the Department at the address provided on the report form.

(9) The Department may charge the facility a fee of $100 if, for any reason, the check, draft, order, or electronic funds transfer request is dishonored. This charge is in addition to any penalty for nonpayment of the assessments that may also be due.

Filing an Amended Report

(1) Claims for refunds or payments for additional assessment must be submitted by the facility on a form approved by the Department. The facility must provide all information required on the report. The Department may audit the facility, request additional information, or request an informal conference prior to granting a refund or as part of its review of a payment of a deficiency.

(2) Claim for refund.

(a) If the amount of the assessment due is less than the amount paid by the facility and the facility does not then owe an assessment for any other calendar period, the overpayment may be refunded by the Department to the facility. The facility may request a refund by amending their quarterly report and submitting a written request for refund to the Department, or the facility may request a refund when filing their nursing facility financial statement or revenue report.

(b) If there is an amount due from the facility for any past due assessments or penalties, the refund otherwise allowable shall be applied to the unpaid assessments and penalties and the facility so notified.

(3) Payment of deficiency.

(a) If the amount of the assessment is more than the amount paid by the facility, the facility may file a corrected report on a form approved by the Department and pay the deficiency at any time. The penalty under OAR 411-069-0080 shall stop accruing after the Department receives payment of the total deficiency for the calendar quarter; and

(b) If there is an error in the determination of the assessment due, the facility may describe the circumstances of the late additional payment with the late filing of the amended report. The Department, at its sole discretion, may determine that a late additional payment does not constitute a failure to file a report or pay an assessment giving rise to the imposition of a penalty. In making this determination, the Department shall consider the circumstances, including but not limited to nature and extent of error, facility explanation of the error, evidence of prior errors, and evidence of prior penalties (including evidence of informal dispositions or settlement agreements). This provision only applies if the facility has filed a timely original return and paid the assessment identified in the return.

(4) If the Department discovers or identifies information in the administration of these assessment rules that it determines may give rise to the issuance of a notice of proposed action or the issuance of a refund, the Department shall issue notification pursuant to OAR 411-069-0100.

Determining the Date Filed

For the purpose of these rules, any reports, requests, appeals, payments, or other response by the facility must be either received by the Department before the close of business on the date due, or if mailed, postmarked before midnight of the due date. When the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the return is due on the next business day following the Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.

Assessing Tax on Failure to File

In the case of a failure by the facility to file a report or to maintain necessary and adequate records, the Department shall determine the assessment liability of the facility according to the best of its information and belief. Best of its information and belief means the Department shall use evidence on which a reasonable person may rely in determining the assessment, including but not limited to estimating the days of patient days based upon the number of licensed beds in the facility. The Department's determination of assessment liability shall be the basis for the assessment due in a notice of proposed action.
