New RCFE Admission Agreement Regulations

April 4, 2017
March 2017

On April 1, 2017, California will have new regulations governing RCFE admission agreements. These regulations implement several laws involving admission agreements that were passed between 2002–2013, and contain many of the same provisions. The regulations require that the agreement be written in “clear, understandable, coherent, and unambiguous language, using words with common and everyday meanings.” The regulations specify items that must be included in the agreements, such as available services, payment provisions, modification and refund conditions. The regulations also specify items that may not be included in the agreements, such as waivers of facility responsibility for residents’ health, safety or personal property, or any provision that violates residents’ rights.
