§ 43.01 Fees and rates for department services.

(a) The department shall charge fees for its services to patients and residents, provided, however, that no person shall be denied services because of inability or failure to pay a fee.

(b) The commissioner may establish, at least annually, schedules of rates for inpatient services that reflect the costs of services, care, treatment, maintenance, overhead, and administration which assure maximum recovery of such costs. In addition, the commissioner may establish, at least annually, schedules of fees for noninpatient services which need not reflect the costs of services, care, treatment, maintenance, overhead, and administration.

(c) The executive budget, as recommended, shall reflect, by individual facility, the costs of services, care, treatment, maintenance, overhead, and administration.

(d) All schedules of fees and rates which are established by the commissioner, shall be subject to the approval of the director of the division of the budget. Immediately upon their approval, copies of all schedules of fees and rates established pursuant to this section shall be forwarded to the chairman of the assembly ways and means committee and the chairman of the senate finance committee.
