Please forward a copy of this AFL to the person or company that normally remits payment for renewal of your health care facility operating license.

Renewal Notices
CHCQ will send renewal notices and applications to the facility’s licensee 45-120 days prior to the license expiration date. It is the responsibility of the facility’s licensee to obtain a renewal notice. If the licensee does not receive a renewal notice within 45 days prior to the license expiration date, contact the CHCQ Fiscal Services and Revenue Collection Unit (FSRCU) at RCollection@cdph.ca.gov, or by telephone at (916) 552-8700 or (800) 236-9747.

Late Payment Penalties
HSC section 1266.5 requires CHCQ to impose late payment penalties for health care facilities and agencies that are delinquent in paying license renewal fees. CHCQ uses the post office or delivery service postmark date to establish assessment of late payment penalty fees. California law does not allow a grace period for payment of license fees.

Medi-Cal Offsets
HSC section 1266.5(c) specifies that the department may, upon written notification to the licensee, offset any moneys owed to the licensee by the Medi-Cal program or any other payment program administered by the department, to recoup the license renewal fees and any associated late payment penalties.
