F.S. 429.54
429.54 Collection of information; local subsidy.
(1) To enable the agency to collect the information requested by the Legislature regarding the actual cost of providing room, board, and personal care in facilities, the agency is authorized to conduct field visits and audits of facilities as necessary. The owners of randomly sampled facilities shall submit such reports, audits, and accountings of cost as the agency may require by rule; provided that such reports, audits, and accountings shall be the minimum necessary to implement this section. Any facility selected to participate in the study shall cooperate with the agency by providing cost of operation information to interviewers.
(2) Local governments or organizations may contribute to the cost of care of local facility residents by further subsidizing the rate of state-authorized payment to such facilities. Implementation of local subsidy requires agency approval and may not result in reductions in the state supplement. 12, 35, ch. 80-198; s. 2, ch. 81-318; ss. 75, 79, 83, ch. 83-181; s. 53, ch. 83-218; ss. 38, 39, ch. 93-216; s. 2, ch. 2006-197; s. 21, ch. 2019-11.
