The State of Colorado requires long-term care facilities and other caregivers who handle patient trust funds to file a surety bond with the state. Residents of facilities are vulnerable to improper use of trust fund finances, and this patient trust surety bond guarantees that the principal (care facility) protects and manages monies in the trust ethically and in the manner directed by the law. If the facility fails to fulfill the bond’s terms, the harmed party can file a claim against the bond. The surety will pay out up to the penal sum of the bond if the claim is valid, and any monies paid out by the surety must be reimbursed by the principal. Patient trust bond amounts vary depending on the amount of funds handled by the facility. The Colorado Department of Health & Environment (DPHE) is the regulatory body that handles licensing for care facilities, and it is recommended you contact the DPHE for the bond amount you will need prior to bonding.
