An Offer We Couldn't Refuse

Lyn Bentley

AHCA/NCAL and LeadingAge continue to hold an agreement with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC) that exempts nursing and assisted living facilities from licensing fees for showing video performances in common areas.

Long term care facilities with independent living units are required to pay reasonable licensing fees. Low income senior housing units or facilities which have a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) contract; however, will pay MPLC lower fees if they provide MPLC with both the project number and the number of HUD units.

Further, all facilities using closed circuit television will be required to pay reasonable licensing fees under an MPLC Umbrella License based on the number of connections. Any AHCA/NCAL and LeadingAge member who is required to pay MPLC licensing fees will receive a 10% discount and may receive additional discounts based on the number of licensed facilities owned.

If you have questions/concerns, don’t hesitate to contact either Lyn Bentley or Dave Kyllo.
