HB20-1101 - Referred to the Committee of the Whole - Consent Calendar

02:08:25 PM  

Senators Hisey and Todd, bill sponsors, presented House Bill 20-1101.  The bill requires an agreement between an assisted living residence referral agency and a prospective resident to be in writing and include:

  • the right of the prospective resident or their representative to terminate the referral agency's services for any reason and at any time; and
  • a requirement that, if the prospective resident terminates the services of the referral agency, that the referral agency must communicate this termination to any assisted living residences to which the prospective resident was referred.

The bill prohibits an assisted living residence from paying a fee to a referral agency if the agreement between the referral agency and prospective resident or their representative was terminated. Additionally, assisted living residences may not sell a prospective resident's contact information without written consent. This bill also expands the definition of assisted living residence to include facilities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, long-term care facilities, and any other similar facility.
