SECTION 12-D
Filing of certain information by medical facilities
Public Health (PBH) CHAPTER 45, ARTICLE 1, TITLE 2
§ 12-d. Filing of certain information by medical facilities. 1. In
the event a medical facility fails to file the required financial and
statistical reports, or specific additional data related to the rate
setting process, on or before the prescribed due dates, or as the same
may be extended by the commissioner, the commissioner shall reduce the
current rate established for payments by governmental agencies by up to
two percent for a period beginning on the first day of the calendar
month following the original due date of the required reports or
additional data and continuing until the last day of the calendar month
in which said reports or data are filed.

2. If the financial and statistical reports required by this section
are determined by the commissioner to be incomplete, inaccurate or
incorrect, the medical facility will have thirty days from the date of
receipt of notification to provide the corrected or additional data.
Failure to file the corrected or additional data that was previously
required within such thirty day period, or as the same may be extended
by the commissioner, shall result in a reduction of the current rate in
accordance with subdivision one of this section.

3. For purposes of this section, "specific additional data related to
the rate setting process", shall mean those for use in a wage geographic
differential survey, a peer grouping data survey and a medical supplies
survey and a malpractice insurance survey, as well as other information
intended for use in establishing rates. The commissioner shall supply
each medical facility with preliminary information concerning the data
that will be required prior to the start of each rate period. Failure
to file such additional data within thirty days from the date of receipt
of notification to supply such information, or as the same may be
extended by the commissioner, shall result in a reduction of the current
rate in accordance with subdivision one of this section.

4. For the purposes of this section, "medical facility" shall mean a
residential health care facility, general hospital, free-standing
ambulatory care facility, diagnostic and/or treatment center and clinic
authorized under article twenty-eight of this chapter, and a certified
home health agency and long term home health care program authorized
under article thirty-six of this chapter.
