Enrollment in the basic health plan for home care workers with family incomes at or above 200 percent of poverty shall be covered with general fund--state and matching general fund--federal revenues that were identified by the department to have been previously appropriated for health benefits coverage, to the extent that these funds had not been contractually obligated for worker wage increases prior to March 1, 1996.

       (b) $365,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $1,543,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 are provided solely for employment, or other day activities and training programs, for young people who complete their high school curriculum in 1997 or 1998.

Such action may include the adoption of emergency rules and may not be taken to the extent that projected over-expenditures are offset by under-expenditures elsewhere within the program's general fund--state appropriation. Prior to adjusting eligibility standards, the secretary should first exercise all opportunities to manage the average cost per person served through methods such as promoting the use of informal and less expensive forms of care; reducing authorization of hours for stand-by assistance when unpaid caregivers are available in the home; and reducing on a sliding-scale basis the amount of service authorized per functional need level, with smaller reductions for greater levels of need.

       (h) $426,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 and $469,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to develop and operate community services for persons residing at eastern and western state hospitals whose needs are such that they cannot be served in existing community vacancies.

       (i) $200,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $1,592,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 are provided solely for employment and day program services for adults, or residential placements for children or adults, who are not currently able to participate in such services because of funding limitations.

       (k) $89,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998, $661,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999, and $825,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for medicaid personal care exceptional rates.

       (l) Within amounts appropriated in this subsection, the division shall contract for a pilot program to test an alternative service delivery model for services to persons with autism. The division must utilize a competitive process to determine the site of the pilot. The pilot must be time limited and subject to an evaluation of client outcomes to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of the pilot compared to the standard service model for persons with autism.

       (m) Within amounts appropriated in this section, the division of developmental disabilities may expend a maximum of $83,440 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 and $83,440 of the general fund--federal appropriation to implement Substitute House Bill No. 2983 (developmentally disabled residents).

       The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

       (1) The entire health services account appropriation and (($6,076,000)) $2,175,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for the enrollment in the basic health plan of home care workers with family incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level who are employed through state contracts. Enrollment in the basic health plan for home care workers with family incomes at or above 200 percent of poverty shall be covered with general fund--state and matching general fund--federal revenues that were identified by the department to have been previously appropriated for health benefits coverage, to the extent that these funds had not been contractually obligated for worker wage increases prior to March 1, 1996.

       (2) $1,277,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $1,277,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 are provided solely for operation of the volunteer chore program.

       (3) (($107,997,000)) $117,221,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and (($120,397,000)) $128,997,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999, ((plus any vendor rate increases allocated to these services in accordance with section 213 of this act,)) of which no less than forty-nine percent shall be allotted for expenditure during the first six months of fiscal year 1999, are provided solely to deliver chore, COPES, and medicaid personal care services. If the secretary of social and health services determines that total expenditures are likely to exceed these amounts, the secretary shall take action as required by RCW 74.09.520, 74.39A.120, and 74.09.530 to adjust functional eligibility standards and/or service levels sufficiently to maintain expenditures within appropriated levels. Such action may include the adoption of emergency rules, and shall not be taken to the extent that projected over-expenditures are offset by under-expenditures resulting from lower than budgeted nursing home caseloads. Prior to adjusting eligibility standards, the secretary should first exercise all opportunities to manage the average cost per person served, through methods such as promoting the use of informal care; assuring that local offices are effectively and consistently authorizing the least expensive level of care which can meet recipient needs; using waiting lists for reducing authorization of hours for stand-by assistance when unpaid caregivers are available in the home; and reducing on a sliding-scale basis the amount of service authorized per functional need level, with smaller reductions for greater levels of need.

       (4) $1,080,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 is provided to maintain service eligibility for persons receiving services through the chore, COPES, or medicaid personal care programs in the event eligibility adjustments are made in accordance with subsection (3) of this section. The department may use seventy-five percent of amounts not needed for that purpose to implement quality of care enhancements.

       (5) $26,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998, $59,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999, and $85,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to employ registered nurses rather than social workers to fill six of the new field positions to be filled in fiscal year 1998 and seven more of the new positions to be filled in fiscal year 1999. These registered nurses shall conduct assessments, develop and monitor service plans, and consult with social work staff to assure that persons with medical needs are placed in and receive the appropriate level of care.

       (((5))) (6) $425,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $882,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 are provided solely to implement Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5179 (nursing facility reimbursement). If the bill is not enacted by June 30, 1997, the amounts provided in this subsection shall lapse.

       (((6))) (7) A maximum of $2,193,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $2,351,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation for fiscal year 1998 are provided to fund the medicaid share of any new prospective payment rate adjustments as may be necessary in accordance with RCW 74.46.460.

       (((7))) (8) $242,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998, $212,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999, and $498,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for operation of a system for investigating allegations of staff abuse and neglect in nursing homes, as provided in Second Substitute House Bill No. 1850 (long-term care standards of care).

       (((8) $350,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $382,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 are provided solely to supplement the incomes of disabled legal immigrants who, because of loss of their federal supplemental security income benefit, would otherwise be at risk of placement into a more expensive long-term care setting.))

       (9)(a) The department shall establish a shadow case mix payment system to educate facilities about payment system alternatives. The department shall provide shadow rates beginning July 1, 1997, based on the following:

       (i) The direct care portion of the rate, usually called "nursing services," shall be set under a case mix methodology that classifies residents under the Resource Utilization Group III (RUG-III) Version 5.10 (or subsequent revision) 44 group index maximizing model based on the Minimum Data Set (MDS) Version 2.0.

       (ii) Payment to a facility shall be based on facility weighted average case mix data which provides one rate to a facility reflecting its mix of residents. For purposes of determining the facility's cost per case mix unit, the facility average case mix score will be based on the case mix of all residents. For purposes of determining the facility's payment rate, the facility average case mix score shall be based on the case mix of medicaid residents.

       (iii) The direct care rates shall be adjusted prospectively each quarter based on the facility's MDS 2.0 data from the quarter commencing six months preceding the rate effective date. For example, the MDSs for 1/1/97 - 3/31/97 shall be used to establish shadow rates for 7/1/97 - 9/30/97.

       (iv) Those costs which currently comprise nursing services as defined by chapter 74.46 RCW, excluding therapies, shall be included in the direct care component for case mix.

       (v) Data from 1994 cost reports (allowable and audited costs) shall be used to establish the shadow rates. The costs shall be inflated comparable to fiscal year 1998 payment rates, according to RCW 74.46.420.

       (vi) Separate prices, ceilings, and corridors shall be established for the peer groups of metropolitan statistical area and nonmetropolitan statistical area.

       (b) The following methods shall be used to establish the shadow case mix rates:

       (i) A pricing system in which payment to a facility shall be based on a price multiplied by each facility's medicaid case mix. The price, per peer group, shall be established at the median direct care cost per case mix unit.

       (ii) A pricing system in which payment to a facility shall be based on a price multiplied by each facility's medicaid case mix. The price, per peer group, shall be based on the cost per case-mix unit of a group of cost-effective benchmark facilities which meet quality standards.

       (iii) A corridor-based system in which payment to a facility shall be the facility's allowable cost per case-mix unit adjusted for case mix up to a ceiling and no less than a floor. The floor, per peer group, shall be established at 90 percent of the cost per case-mix unit of a group of cost-effective benchmark facilities which meet quality standards. The ceiling, per peer group, shall be established at 110 percent of the cost per case-mix unit of the group of benchmark facilities.

       (iv) A corridor-based system in which payment to a facility shall be the facility's allowable cost per case-mix unit adjusted for case mix up to a ceiling and no less than a floor. The floor, per peer group, shall be established at 90 percent of the industry-wide median direct care cost per case-mix unit. The ceiling, per peer group, shall be established at 110 percent of the industry-wide median direct care cost per case-mix unit.

       (c) The department shall provide all data, information, and specifications of the methods used in establishing the shadow case mix rates to the nursing home provider associations.

       (d) It is the legislature's intent that the average state payment for nursing facility services under the new system increase by no more than 175 percent of the health care financing administration nursing home input price index, excluding capital costs. In designing the new payment system, the department shall develop and propose options for the combined direct and indirect rate components that assure this.

       (10) $50,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998 and $50,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 are provided solely for payments to any nursing facility licensed under chapter 18.51 RCW which meets all of the following criteria: (a) The nursing home entered into an arm's length agreement for a facility lease prior to January 1, 1980; (b) the lessee purchased the leased nursing home after January 1, 1980; and (c) the lessor defaulted on its loan or mortgage for the assets of the home after January 1, 1991, and prior to January 1, 1992. Payments provided pursuant to this subsection shall not be subject to the settlement, audit, or rate-setting requirements contained in chapter 74.46 RCW.

       (11) (($546,000)) $506,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1998, (($583,000)) $502,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999, and (($1,220,000)) $1,095,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for an increase in the state payment rates for adult residential care and enhanced adult residential care.

       (12) $132,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 1999 and $526,000 of the general fund--local appropriation are provided solely for implementation of House Bill No. 2410 (boarding homes). If the bill is not enacted by June 30, 1998, the amounts provided in this subsection shall lapse.

State of Washington (Thurston county superior court cause no. 92-2-01294-1) using funds in the public employees' and retirees' insurance account. The legislature recognizes that payment of these claims may reduce premium stabilization reserves below target levels on an interim basis. It is the legislature's intent that the viability of health care authority-administered programs be preserved and that the benefit levels for health care authority-administered programs not be reduced in the event premium stabilization reserves are used to pay such claims.
