Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Nursing Home Care Act. Provides that a facility of which only a distinct part is certified to participate in the Medical Assistance Program may refuse to retain as a resident any person who resides in a part of the facility that does not participate in the Medical Assistance Program and who is unable to pay for his or her care in the facility without Medical Assistance only if, in addition to meeting other requirements, in circumstances where the Medicare coverage is ending prior to the full 100-day benefit period, the facility provides notice to the resident and to the resident's representative that the resident's Medicare coverage will likely end in 5 days. Requires the notification to specify that the resident shall not be required to move until these 5 days are up. In cases where the facility is notified in a shorter time frame than 5 days by a managed care organization or the time frame is shorter than 5 days due to inaccurate reporting by an outside entity, requires the facility to provide a minimum of 2 days' notification.
