AS 18.20.340. Civil Fines.

In accordance with regulations adopted by the department under AS 44.62.010 - 44.62.300, the department may assess and collect, with interest, a civil fine of up to $10,000 a day for each day a nursing facility is or was out of compliance with any of the federal or state statutes or regulations listed in AS 18.20.310 . The department shall annually increase the maximum amount of the civil fine authorized in this section by a percentage equal to the percentage of increase in all items of the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers for Anchorage, Alaska. Each day upon which the same or a substantially similar noncompliance occurs is a separate violation subject to the assessment of a separate civil fine. A civil fine assessed under this section is not reimbursable under AS 47.07 or AS 47.25.120 - 47.25.300. The department shall deduct the amount of a civil fine from reimbursement due or to be due the nursing facility under AS 47.07 or AS 47.25.120 - 47.25.300. The department may also use any remedy available under law to pursue collection of an unpaid fine.
