1. The Division shall establish a fee schedule for services rendered through any program supported by the state pursuant to the provisions of chapters 433 to 436, inclusive, of NRS. The schedule must be submitted to the Commission and the Director of the Department for joint approval before enforcement. The fees collected by facilities operated by the Division pursuant to this schedule must be deposited in the State Treasury to the credit of the State General Fund, except as otherwise provided in NRS 433.354 for fees collected pursuant to contract or agreement and in NRS 435.120 for fees collected for services to mentally retarded clients and clients with related conditions.
