When establishing a rate for these services, the commissioner shall also consider an individual recipient's needs as identified in the individualized service plan and the person's need for active treatment as defined under federal regulations. The pass-through payments for services during the day shall be paid separately by the commissioner and shall not be included in the computation of the ICF/DD facility total payment rate.
