      (b) Prospective rates shall be determined on a cost basis annually, and may be revised on an interim basis by the department.

      (c) An adjustment to a prospective rate (subject to the maximum payment for that type of facility) shall be considered if:

      1. The facility's increased costs are attributable to:

      a. A governmentally imposed minimum wage increase, staffing ratio increase, or a level of service increase; and

      a. Not pay the facility twice for the same costs; and

      b. Adjust downward the trending and indexing factors to the extent necessary to remove from the factors costs relating to the minimum wage updates already provided for by the separate rate adjustment.

      2. If the trending and indexing factors include costs related to a minimum wage increase:

      a. The department shall not make a separate rate adjustment; and

      b. The minimum wage costs shall not be deleted from the trending and indexing factors.

      3. The maximum payment amounts for the prospective universal rate year shall be adjusted each July 1 so that the maximum payment amount in effect for the rate year shall be related to the cost reports used in setting the facility rates for the rate year.

      4. For purposes of administrative ease in computations, normal rounding shall be used in establishing the maximum payment amount, with the maximum payment amount rounded to the nearest five (5) cents.

      (3)(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection, interest expense used

in setting a prospective rate shall be an allowable cost if permitted pursuant to 42 C.F.R. 413.153 and if the interest expense:
