    AN ACT concerning public aid.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Public Aid Code is amended by
adding Section 5-5.4f as follows:
    (305 ILCS 5/5-5.4f new)
    Sec. 5-5.4f. Minimum Data Set (MDS) Compliance Review;
preliminary findings. The Department shall establish by rule a
procedure for sharing preliminary Minimum Data Set (MDS)
Compliance Review findings with nursing facilities prior to
completion of the on-site review. The procedure shall include,
but not be limited to, notification to a nursing facility of
specific areas of missing documentation required under 89 Ill.
Adm. Code 147.75 and the federally mandated resident assessment
instrument as specified in 42 CFR 483.20 likely to be
determined deficient upon conclusion of the Department's
quality assurance review process. Prior to the conclusion of
the on-site review, the facility shall be given the opportunity
to address the specific areas of missing documentation. A
facility disputing any rate change may submit an appeal request
pursuant to provisions established at 89 Ill. Adm. Code
140.830. An appeal hearing may be requested if the facility
believes that the basis for reducing the facility's MDS rate
was in error. The facility may not offer any additional
documentation during the appeal hearing, but may identify
documentation provided during the on-site review that may
support a specific area of documentation deemed deficient by
the Department.
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.

Effective Date: 7/27/2010
