Section 651.0235, Florida Statutes 2001
651.0235 Validity of provisional certificates of authority and certificates of authority.--
(1) The provisional certificate of authority and certificate of authority shall be valid for as long as the department determines that the provider continues to meet the requirements of this chapter.
(2) If the provider fails to meet the requirements of this chapter for a provisional certificate of authority or a certificate of authority, the department may notify the provider of any deficiencies and require the provider to correct such deficiencies within a period to be determined by the department. If such deficiencies are not corrected within 20 days after the notice to the provider, or within less time at the discretion of the department, the department shall notify the advisory council, which may assist the facility in formulating a remedial plan to be submitted to the department no later than 60 days from the date of notification. The time period granted to correct deficiencies may be extended upon submission of a plan for corrective action approved by the department. If such deficiencies have not been cleared by the expiration of such time period, as extended, the department shall petition for a delinquency proceeding or pursue such other relief as is provided for under this chapter, as the circumstances may require.
(3) The Department of Insurance shall notify the Agency for Health Care Administration of any facility for which a provisional certificate of authority or certificate of authority is no longer valid.
