Part I
Definitions

12VAC5-215-10. Definitions.

The following words and terms, when used in this chapter, shall have the following meanings:

"Adjusted patient days" means inpatient days divided by the percentage of inpatient revenues to total patient revenues.

"Board" means the Board of Health.

"Certified nursing facility" means any skilled nursing facility, skilled care facility, intermediate care facility, nursing or nursing care facility, or nursing home, whether freestanding or a portion of a freestanding medical care facility, that is certified as a Medicare or Medicaid provider, or both, pursuant to § 32.1-137 of the Code of Virginia.

"Consumer" means any person (i) whose occupation is other than the administration of health activities or the provision of health services, (ii) who has no fiduciary obligation to a health care institution or other health agency or to any organization, public or private, whose principal activity is an adjunct to the provision of health services, or (iii) who has no material financial interest in the rendering of health services.

"Health care institution" means (i) a general hospital, ordinary hospital, or outpatient surgical hospital, nursing home or certified nursing facility licensed or certified pursuant to Article 1 (§ 32.1-123 et seq.) of Chapter 5 of Title 32.1 of the Code of Virginia, (ii) a mental or psychiatric hospital licensed pursuant to Chapter 8 (§ 37.1-179 et seq.) of Title 37.1 of the Code of Virginia or (iii) a hospital operated by the University of Virginia or Virginia Commonwealth University. In no event shall such term be construed to include continuing care retirement communities which file annual financial reports with the State Corporation Commission pursuant to Chapter 49 (§ 38.2-4900 et seq.) of Title 38.2 of the Code of Virginia, any physician's office, nursing care facility of a religious body which depends upon prayer alone for healing, independent laboratory or outpatient clinic.

"Hospital" means any facility licensed pursuant to § 32.1-123 et seq. or § 37.1-179 et seq. of the Code of Virginia.

"Late charge" means a fee that is assessed a health care institution that submits any of the board's filings past the due date.

"Nursing home" means any facility or any identifiable component of any facility licensed pursuant to Article 1 (§ 32.1-123 et seq.) of Chapter 5 of Title 32.1 of the Code of Virginia, in which the primary function is the provision, on a continuing basis, of nursing services and health-related services for the treatment and inpatient care of two or more nonrelated individuals, including facilities known by varying nomenclature or designation such as convalescent homes, skilled nursing facilities or skilled care facilities, intermediate care facilities, extended care facilities and nursing or nursing care facilities.

"Patient day" means a unit of measure denoting lodging facilities provided and services rendered to one inpatient, between census-taking-hour on two successive days. The day of admission but not the day of discharge or death is counted a patient day. If both admission and discharge or death occur on the same day, the day is considered a day of admission and counts as one patient day. For purposes of filing fees to the board, newborn patient days would be added. For a medical facility, such as an ambulatory surgery center, which does not provide inpatient services, each patient undergoing surgery during any one 24-hour period will be equivalent to one patient day.

Part III
Filing Requirements and Fee Structure

12VAC5-215-50. Annual historical filing.

Each individual health care institution shall submit an annual historical filing of revenues, expenses, other income, other outlays, assets and liabilities, units of service, and related statistics as prescribed in § 9-158 (Repealed) of the Code of Virginia on forms provided by the board together with unconsolidated certified audited financial statements. If the health care institution is part of a publicly held company, the individual institution may submit unconsolidated unaudited financial statements. Investor-owned institutions organized as proprietorships, partnerships, or S-corporations that impute income tax on the annual historical filing report an imputed income tax based on the maximum tax rates for federal and state income. The combined rate for 1989 is equal to 34% for individuals and 40% for corporations. Operating losses may be carried forward no more than five years but may not be carried back to prior years. The schedule of imputed income taxes shall be reported as a note to the financial statements or as a supplemental schedule of the certified audited financial statements submitted to the board by the institution. The annual historical filing and the unconsolidated certified audited financial statement shall be received by the board no later than 120 days after the end of the respective applicable health care institution's fiscal year. The requirement for the submission of an annual historical filing and an unconsolidated certified audited financial statement may be waived if a health care institution can show that an extenuating circumstance exists. Requests for a waiver must be submitted in writing prior to the due date. Examples of an extenuating circumstance include, but are not limited to, involvement by the institution in a bankruptcy proceeding, closure of the institution, change of ownership of the institution, or the institution is a new facility that has recently opened.

Each health care institution with licensed nursing home beds or certified nursing facility beds shall exclude all revenues, expenses, other income, other outlays, assets and liabilities, units of service and related statistics directly associated with a hospital, continuing care retirement community, or with adult care residence beds in the annual report filed with the board. For those health care institutions that participate in either the Medicare or Medicaid program, the cost allocation methodology required by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services and Medicare for cost reports submitted to it shall be utilized for filings submitted to the board. Any health care institution that does not participate in the Medicare or Medicaid program may develop and utilize an alternative methodology to determine the nursing home portion of its costs if it chooses not to utilize the cost allocation methodology used by the Department of Medical Assistance Services and Medicare. That methodology shall then be approved by the board and the health care institution must continue to utilize that methodology for all subsequent filings unless a subsequent change is approved by the board.

Any subsequent amendment or modification to the annually filed schedule of charges shall be filed within 10 days of the effective date of the revised annual projection. In addition to the requirement above, a new schedule of charges must be submitted if any of the following conditions exist: (i) the creation or revision of a markup or pricing methodology, or (ii) the creation or revision of charges for new services or products.
