Revision Notice 16-2; Effective September 19, 2016


New §92.21 implements Texas Health and Safety Code §247.022, as amended by House Bill 1769, 84th Legislature, which allows DADS to issue an initial assisted living facility (ALF) license without conducting an on-site health inspection to an applicant that meets "good standing" criteria.

§92.64(4)(B) clarifies that a facility may admit more than three residents after it meets the requirements of a Life Safety Code inspection and DADS issues a license under §92.21.

§92.551 allows DADS to impose an administrative penalty of $500-$800 if an ALF does not disclose that the facility has not yet met the requirements of an on-site health inspection in accordance with §92.21.
