§ 6211.73. Compensation and staffing costs.
(a) Compensation for direct care, administrative, and support staff are allowable costs. Compensation is allowable up to the combined prevailing Commonwealth salaries and benefits for functionally equivalent positions.
(b) Payment will not be made to exceed an overall ratio of one direct care staff to one certified bed, unless documentation supports the need to exceed the ratio to establish and maintain certification. The overall ratio shall be calculated based upon the average fulltime equivalent direct care staff for the fiscal year and the average number of certified beds for this period. Staff are counted in the overall ratio for the percentage of time they are assigned to the facility in performing a direct care function.
(c) Various personnel costs that are not provided through salaried complement for the provision of necessary services for individual clients are allowable. Contracts that specify the nature of the service and define the unit and cost of the service shall be maintained by the facility, in addition to documentation of services rendered.
