    Bill Summary

    This bill exempts religious organizations and religious institutions that provide limited respite care services programs from licensure for providing adult day care.

    Present law prohibits any person or entity of any kind, public or private, from providing adult day care in this state without first obtaining a license.

    This bill exempts limited respite care services programs from the present law prohibition, which would allow the programs to operate without obtaining licensure. Under this bill, limited respite care services programs are programs that provide primary caregivers of appropriate adults with relief from normal caregiving duties and responsibilities and:

    (1) Are operated by a religious institution or religious organization that provides custodial care for aging adults, vulnerable adults, and adults with limitations on activities of daily living who:
    (A) Are able to function in a group setting;
    (B) Are able to feed and perform toilet functions themselves with or without the assistance of a personal aide;
    (C) Attend the program no more than three days each calendar week, not more than 12 hours in any one week, and not more than six hours each day; and
    (2) Are registered with the department of health pursuant to rule promulgated by the commissioner.

    This bill authorizes the department to make site visits to a program in order to ensure compliance with the terms of the exemption permitted under this bill.

    ON FEBRUARY 26, 2018, THE SENATE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1 AND PASSED SENATE BILL 1487, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 deletes vulnerable adults as a class of persons that a limited respite care services program may serve while maintaining an exemption from licensure and adds that following requirements that a limited respite care services program must comply with in order to qualify for the exemption:

    (1) Maintain records that include, at a minimum, dates and times of each adult's attendance;
    (2) Provide care services for less than 15 adults at the same time; and
    (3) Refrain from administration of medications to adults while under the program's care.

    ON MARCH 12, 2018, THE HOUSE SUBSTITUTED SENATE BILL 1487 FOR HOUSE BILL 1498, ADOPTED AMENDMENT #2, AND PASSED SENATE BILL 1487, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #2 adds that for purposes of this bill, "religious institution" or "religious organization" means an entity exempt from registration as a bona fide religious institution under the present law provisions governing solicitation of charitable funds. Under those provisions, "bona fide religious institutions" includes:

    (1) Ecclesiastical or denominational organizations, churches or established physical places for worship in this state, at which nonprofit religious services and activities are regularly conducted and carried on, and also includes those bona fide religious groups which do not maintain specific places of worship and which are not subject to federal income tax and are not required to file an IRS Form 990 under any circumstance;
    (2) Such separate groups or corporations that form an integral part of those institutions that are exempt from federal income tax as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3), of the Internal Revenue Code or of a corresponding section of any subsequently enacted federal revenue act, and that are not required to file an IRS Form 990 under any circumstance, and which are not primarily supported by funds solicited outside their own membership or congregation; and
    (3) Such institutions soliciting contributions for the construction and maintenance of a house of worship or residence of a clergy member.
