Continuing Care Provider Registration and Disclosure

R.I. Gen. Laws § 23-59-5

§ 23-59-5. Annual disclosure statements.

(a) Within four (4) months following the end of the provider’s fiscal year, each provider shall file with the department and make available by written notice to each resident at no cost an annual disclosure statement which shall contain the information required for the initial disclosure statement set forth in § 23-59-3.

(b) The annual disclosure statement shall also be accompanied by a narrative describing any material differences between:

(1) The prior fiscal year’s pro forma income statement, and

(2) The actual results of operations during that fiscal year.

(c) The annual disclosure statement shall describe the disposition of any real property acquired by the provider from residents of the facility.

(d) In addition to filing the annual disclosure statement, the provider shall amend its currently filed disclosure statement at any other time if, in the opinion of the provider, an amendment is necessary to prevent the disclosure statement from containing any material misstatement of fact or failing to state any material fact required to be stated therein. Any amendment or amended disclosure statement shall be filed with the department before it is delivered to any resident or prospective resident and is subject to all the requirements of this chapter and the provider shall notify each resident of the existence of the amendment or amended disclosure statement.

(e) If the department determines that the disclosure statement does not comply with the provisions of this chapter, it shall have the right to take action pursuant to § 23-59-16.
