During a Special Session of the Florida Legislature in January 2009, Senate Bill 8-A passed as Chapter 2009-4, Laws of Florida (PDF 103KB), creating the Quality Assessment on Nursing Home Facility Providers in section 409.9082, Florida Statutes, and is effective April 1, 2009. The Agency for Health Care Administration is responsible for implementing this assessment which is calculated monthly on a per-resident-day basis excluding Medicare resident days.

The Agency has developed an online reporting form for nursing homes to submit required information each month. In order to comply with this new statute, it is imperative that each licensed nursing home report their data online and remit their monthly assessment payment no later than the 15th of the following reporting month.
