Annual License Renewal Fee Schedule for Health Facilities Now Available

This week, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released the attached All Facilities Letter 18-29, with a schedule of fiscal year 2018-19 health care facility license renewal fees that took effect July 1. The 2018-19 budget process approved an increase in hospital fees by 5 percent (from $515.04 to $540.79 per licensed bed) and added a supplemental facility fee of $50.53 per bed for hospitals in Los Angeles County to cover the increased cost of doing business in that area.

In the letter, CDPH reminds facilities that they will receive renewal notices at least 45 days prior to license expiration and should contact CDPH if they do not receive notification. The letter also shares information on late payment penalties, Medi-Cal offsets and the steps to renew a license. The complete fee schedule for fiscal year 2018-19 is available online.
