In the event a medical facility fails to file the required financial and statistical reports, or specific additional data related to the rate setting process, on or before the prescribed due dates, or as the same may be extended by the commissioner, the commissioner shall reduce the current rate established for payments by governmental agencies by up to two percent for a period beginning on the first day of the calendar month following the original due date of the required reports or additional data and continuing until the last day of the calendar month in which said reports or data are filed.

Failure to file such additional data within thirty days from the date of receipt of notification to supply such information, or as the same may be extended by the commissioner, shall result in a reduction of the current rate in accordance with subdivision one of this section.
