The date the facility submits all required information does not affect the effective date for payment.
Example: A customer enters a facility 04/16/13. The screening requirement is met 04/16/13. The FCRC receives all necessary information 04/25/13. Approve payment effective 04/16/13.
The information submitted using MEDI or REV may affect the effective date for payment.
Example: The person enters a facility 04/16/13 and applies for assistance 04/18/13. The person is eligible effective 04/13. The screening requirement is met 04/16/13. The data submitted shows payment has already been made for 04/13 and 05/13. Approve payment starting 06/01/13.
Payment is not to be approved unless prior approval is obtained from BLTC and an appropriate bed cannot be found in Illinois.
The FCRC may approve payment to an out-of-state facility.
