What is the purpose of a Florida Assisted Living Facility Bond?
The Florida Assisted Living Facility Bond is required by Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration. It applies to any owner, administrator, or facility representative acting as “representative payee” or holding power of attorney for an Assisted Living Facility resident. The required bond amount is equal to twice the average monthly aggregate personal income, or personal funds, due to residents that are received by a facility.
