What is a Florida Leased Nursing Facility Bond?

Know the how-to of this important surety bond today!

Florida Leased Nursing Facility BondOverpayment and underpayment of Medicaid are one of the problems when a nursing facility’s ownership is transferred or sold.

These liabilities are detected only after a formal field audit has been made in a nursing facility that has been leased by the transferor.

In order to secure the proper payment of Medicaid funds, the transferee – or to whom the nursing facility was sold or transferred to – is obligated to obtain a surety bond before a license is issued by the Agency for Health Care Administration.

The surety bond will financially compensate the Medicaid program in case of any financial losses that occurred during the transferor’s period of operation. It includes the following:

  • Any changes or adjustments in the Medicaid rates
  • Recapture of fair rental value system indexing
  • Depreciation recapture
  • Completed audits by the agency

This requirement is in line with Section 400.179 of the Florida Statutes.
