It would be naive of us to think that the new assisted living license, which will be effective August 1, 2020, won’t come without a cost to providers! And we, here at Care Providers of Minnesota, are dedicated to helping make sure we capture what all those costs are so as you start transitioning to the new licensure or figuring out what your business plan will be you will have a full picture of the costs associated with becoming a licensed assisted living facility. 

Step one of our workplan includes creating an outline of cost categories for consideration (i.e., assessment time, fees, etc.). If any of you have already started the process of determining new expenses you will incur once you become assisted living licensed we would love it if you would share your assumptions with us as we build a generic cost estimates spreadsheet for you! If you have any input, comments, or questions on our work plan, please email Jill Schewe at the Association office.
