Contracts as preferred claims on liquidation or receivership.
F.S. 651.071
651.071 Contracts as preferred claims on liquidation or receivership.
(1) In the event of receivership or liquidation proceedings against a provider, all continuing care and continuing care at-home contracts executed by a provider are deemed preferred claims against all assets owned by the provider; however, such claims are subordinate to any secured claim. For purposes of s. 631.271, such contracts are deemed Class 2 claims.
(2) Any other claims not set forth in subsection (1) shall be considered as general creditors’ claims.
(3) Nothing in this section shall be construed to impair the priority, with respect to the lien property, of mortgages, security agreements, or lease agreements or installment sales agreements on property not otherwise encumbered entered into by a provider with an issuer of bonds or notes, which has financed a facility, and which bonds are secured by a resolution, ordinance, or indenture of trust, if such mortgages or agreements were duly recorded at least 4 months prior to the institution of receivership or liquidation proceedings.
