CDPH Issues AFL on Primary Care Clinic Consolidated Licensure

The California Department of Public Health  has released the attached All-Facilities Letter outlining compliance requirements for licensed primary care clinics (PCCs) under AB 2053 (Chapter 639, Statutes of 2016), which took effect Jan. 1. AB 2053 established consolidated licensure for PCCs, allowing eligible clinics to add additional physical plants to their current license maintained and operated on separate premises. A PCC or affiliate clinic may add additional locations that are no more than one-half mile from the licensed clinic adding the additional physical plant. A licensing fee is required for each additional physical plant approved on the license. For more information, see the attached letter.
