Governor Brown Signs Into Law RCFE's Must Now Carry Liability Insurance

The UT San Diego's coverage of California's push to reform its assisted living industry continues.  (Additional coverage included here.)

In its report, 6Beds Inc., a group of small home providers, expressed concern that the additional cost of mandatory liability insurance will 'force small facilities to close their doors and subsequently leave seniors with reduced care options'.

As sponsor of AB 1523, CARR conducted substantial research on the implications of mandatory liability insurance; chief among them, the issue of affordability.  The overall results of our research are depicted in Table I below and showed that the average monthly cost to a small, 6-bed facility would amount to approximately $50 per month per resident.  A reasonable amount by any standard.
