CDPH Issues SNF Change of Ownership Notification Requirements

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has issued the attached All Facilities Letter, which provides notification to skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs) about state and federal requirements for reporting a change of ownership. State law requires SNFs to submit a new licensing application for any change of ownership, subject to the full application review and approval process. Additionally, federal law requires certified SNFs to notify CDPH within 35 days after any change of ownership of the disclosing entity, a fiscal agent or the managed care entity.
