Effective January 1, 2015: RHB Fee Increase for New Applications and Renewals of Licenses and Certificates

State of California—Health and Human Services Agency California Department of Public Health

INFORMATION NOTICE 

Effective January 1, 2015, the Radiologic Health Branch (RHB) fees will increase by 17.67 percent as authorized by the Budget Act (Blumenfield, Chapter 20, Statutes of 2013) in accordance with California Health and Safety (H&S) Code section 100425. Also, under H&S Code section 100425, this increase and publication of the fee list is not subject to the regulation adoption requirements specified in Chapter 3.5 (commencing with section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code.

Please note that the existing fee schedule was established in 2005 for support of program administration and has not been increased in the ten years since then. The rate increase for the new fee schedule was determined by the California Department of Finance, which uses the fund reserve and revenue as criteria for modifying the existing fee schedule. The new fee schedule will allow the fund to remain solvent and cover the costs of the program’s ongoing operations.

View the official notice including tables indicating the current fees and the fee amounts taking effect on January 1, 2015.

The new amounts will be included in all billing notices for payments required on or after January 1, 2015. This letter and the tables are posted on the internet at www.cdph.ca.gov/rhb under “What’s New.”
