Chapter 90. Methods and Standards for Establishing Payment Rates for Long-Term Care

12VAC30-90-37. Calculation of FRV per diem rate for capital; calculation of FRV rental amount; change of ownership.

A. Calculation of FRV per diem rate for capital.

1. The facility FRV per diem rate shall be equal to the sum of the facility FRV rental amount and the facility's allowable property tax and insurance cost from the most recent settled cost report, divided by the greater of actual patient days or the required occupancy percentage of the potential patient days for all licensed beds throughout the cost reporting period. For facilities that also provide specialized care services, see subdivision 9 of 12VAC30-90-264 for special procedures for computing the number of patient days required to meet the required occupancy percentage requirement.

2. Effective July 1, 2014, facilities shall be required to submit a calendar year FRV report covering both NF and specialized care beds to be used to set a prospective FRV rate effective the following July 1 for both the NF and the specialized care facility. The calendar year FRV report shall be submitted by the end of February following the end of the calendar year. FRV reports shall be settled within 90 days of filing the FRV report. For late FRV reports, the prospective rate may be effective 90 days after the date of filing even if after July 1. No capital rate shall be paid between July 1 and the effective date of the prospective FRV rate for a late report.

3. New nursing facilities or major renovations that qualify for mid-year FRV rate adjustments must follow pro forma submission procedures as specified in 12VAC30-90-28.

B. Calculation of FRV rental amount. The facility FRV rental amount shall be equal to the facility prospective year total value times the rental rate. Effective July 1, 2014, fair rental value per diem rates for the prospective state fiscal year shall be calculated for all freestanding nursing facilities based on the prior calendar year information aged to the state fiscal year and using R.S. Means factors and rental rates corresponding to the state fiscal year. There shall be no separate calculation for beds subject to or not subject to transition.

1. The facility prospective year total value shall be equal to the facility prospective year replacement value minus FRV depreciation. FRV depreciation equals the prospective year replacement value multiplied by the product of facility average age and the depreciation rate. FRV depreciation cannot exceed 60% of the prospective year replacement value.

2. The facility prospective year replacement value shall be equal to the fixed capital replacement value plus the movable equipment replacement value.

C. Change of ownership. As provided in connection with schedule of assets reporting, the sale of nursing facility assets after June 30, 2000, shall not result in a change to the schedule of assets or to the calculation of average age for purposes of reimbursement under the FRV methodology. Therefore, any sale or transfer of assets after this date shall not affect the FRV per diem rate.
