Assisted Living Residences Per Bed Fee Adjustment
[48 Pa.B. 3493]
[Saturday, June 9, 2018]
The purpose of this notice is to announce the adjustment of the assisted living residence per bed fee from $75 to $35 per bed in accordance with 55 Pa. Code § 2800.11(c)(2) (relating to procedural requirements for licensure or approval of assisted living residences; special care designation and dual licensure) which authorizes the Department of Human Services (Department) to adjust the fee annually at a rate not to exceed the Consumer Price Index.
The adjusted per bed fee of $35 is effective July 1, 2018, for new and renewal applications submitted from this date and thereafter.
As of March 1, 2018, the Department received bed fees from 44 assisted living residences accounting for 2,688 beds. The Department anticipates the fee reduction will encourage growth in assisted living residences, which will increase the opportunity for consumers to age in place in the least restrictive setting of their choice.
The Department estimates that revenues collected from bed fees will result in $107,000 less revenue in Fiscal Year 2018-2019.
Persons with a disability who require an auxiliary aid or service may submit comments using the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TDD users) or (800) 654-5988 (voice users).
