(a) Notwithstanding Section 11462, when the director determines that a rate established pursuant to that section for a multistate group home facility which operates in more than two states and which provides high impact adventure programs and which first offered these programs in the State of Arizona, is less than the established national rate for the multistate group home facility, and when the director determines that the multistate group home facility is otherwise licensed but would not be available due to the operation of Section 11462, the director may at his or her discretion establish a rate comparable to the rate paid in other states.
(b) When the director establishes a rate pursuant to this section, the facility shall be subject to audits by the department, or other public or private audit agency with which the department contracts, no less often than every three years.
