Initial License for a Type A or Type B ALF for an Applicant in Good Standing
House Bill 1769 (84th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2015) directed the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to develop rules to allow an ALF provider that meets certain “good standing” criteria to obtain an initial license for a Type A or Type B facility prior to an on-site health inspection. Starting September 1, 2016, an applicant who wants to apply for an initial license under the good standing process may submit form 3720G with the applicable documentation for DADS review and approval. An applicant, who does not want to apply for an initial license using the good standing application process, may follow the regular application process by completing form 3720.
Per Texas Administrative Code, Title 40, Part 1, Chapter 45, §92.21, if an applicant makes a request for a license using the good standing application process, DADS determines whether the applicant is in good standing by reviewing the documentation listed in subsection (d) of the rule.
