1. a. For the purposes of this act, "Medicaid" means the program established pursuant to P.L.1968, c.413 (C.30:4D-1 et seq.) and "Medicaid-eligible" means that a person is determined to meet the financial eligibility standards for medical assistance under the State Medicaid program and is approved by the Department of Health and Senior Services for participation in a federally approved 1915(c) waiver program that provides assisted living services. b. A new facility that is licensed to operate an assisted living residence or comprehensive personal care home after the effective date of this act shall reserve 10% of its total bed compliment for use by Medicaid-eligible persons. The 10% utilization by Medicaid-eligible persons shall be met through Medicaid conversion of persons who enter the assisted living residence or comprehensive personal care home as private paying persons and subsequently become eligible for Medicaid, or through direct admission of Medicaid-eligible persons. An assisted living residence or comprehensive personal care home shall achieve this 10% utilization within three years of licensure to operate and shall maintain this level of utilization thereafter. c. Existing assisted living residences and comprehensive personal care homes that add additional assisted living beds shall be required, as a condition of licensure approval, to maintain 10% of the additional beds for Medicaid-eligible persons through Medicaid conversion of persons who enter the assisted living residence or comprehensive personal care home as private paying persons and subsequently become eligible for Medicaid, or through direct admission of Medicaid-eligible persons. If the total number of additional beds is less than 10, at least one of the additional beds shall be reserved for a Medicaid-eligible person. L.2001,c.234,s.1.
