Long term care facility assessment
(1)A long term care facility assessment is imposed on each long term care facility in this state.
(2)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 a calendar quarter.
(3)The assessment shall be reported on a form prescribed by the Department of Human Services and shall contain the information required to be reported by the department. The assessment form shall be filed with 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. The long term care facility shall pay the assessment at the time the facility files the assessment report. The payment shall accompany the report unless the payment is transmitted electronically or unless the department permits a later payment under criteria prescribed by the department by rule.
(4)A long term care facility is not guaranteed that any additional moneys paid to the facility in the form of reimbursements calculated according to the methodology described in ORS 409.815 (Long Term Care Facility Quality Assurance Fund established) (4) shall equal or exceed the amount of the long term care facility assessment paid by the facility.
