SB18-054 - Cap Fee Increases Assisted Living Residences

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning a limitation on the amount of an increase in fees assessed against assisted living residences by the department of public health and environment.

Under current law, the state board of health (board) is authorized to establish a schedule of fees for health facilities, including assisted living residences, which fees must be sufficient to meet the department of public health and environment's direct and indirect costs in regulating health facilities. With regard to most department-regulated health facilities, the board cannot increase fees by more than the inflation rate. However, the inflation rate limitation does not apply to the fees assessed by the department against assisted living residences.

Starting August 1, 2019, the bill imposes the inflation rate limitation on fees assessed against assisted living residences.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
