​Administrative Day Rate Level 1

Administrative days are inpatient stay days for recipients who no longer require acute hospital care and are awaiting placement in a nursing home or other subacute or post-acute care.
In accordance with California Code of Regulations, Title 22, Sections 51542 and 515​​11, a DP/NF-B of an acute care hospital will receive the lesser of its projected costs or the DP/NF-B median rate as their Administrative Day rate. 
Acute care hospitals without a DP/NF-B will receive the facility-specific rate as their Administrative Day rate.
Below is the DP/NF-B Median rate for each year, including the temporary increased reimbursement for the COVID-19 emergency:
