The rules must provide eligible homes and facilities with a supplemental payment of 15% to be added to their MaineCare rate. Eligible homes and facilities must be allowed to retain this supplemental payment in addition to the total allowable rate for private nonmedical institution direct care services, room and board and personal care services costs otherwise determined under those rules.
