The owner of the property to be released by undertaking, or of a substantial interest in the property, shall file the following with the clerk of the district court for the county in which the lien is filed:

1.?An application for the release of the lien by undertaking;

2.?An affidavit describing the owner's interest in the property and stating that the owner has a defense against the collection of the lien, or a part of the lien, and that there exists a disagreement between the parties as to the amount or validity of the lien, and that the owner desires a discharge of the lien from the records; ?and

3.?An undertaking, in an amount not less than the lien, with two sureties, to the effect that the owner will pay any amount that may be recovered by the lien claimant, together with all costs.

(1)?The agency shall automatically enroll into a long-term care managed care plan those Medicaid recipients who do not voluntarily choose a plan pursuant to s. 409.969. ?The agency shall automatically enroll recipients in plans that meet or exceed the performance or quality standards established pursuant to s. 409.967 and may not automatically enroll recipients in a plan that is deficient in those performance or quality standards. ?If a recipient is deemed dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare services and is currently receiving Medicare services from an entity qualified under 42 C.F.R. part 422 as a Medicare Advantage Preferred Provider Organization, Medicare Advantage Provider-sponsored Organization, or Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan, the agency shall automatically enroll the recipient in such plan for Medicaid services if the plan is currently participating in the long-term care managed care program. ?Except as otherwise provided in this part, the agency may not engage in practices that are designed to favor one managed care plan over another.

(2)?When automatically enrolling recipients in plans, the agency shall take into account the following criteria:

(a)?Whether the plan has sufficient network capacity to meet the needs of the recipients.

(b)?Whether the recipient has previously received services from one of the plan's home and community-based service providers.

(c)?Whether the home and community-based providers in one plan are more geographically accessible to the recipient's residence than those in other plans.

(3)?Notwithstanding s. 409.969(2), if a recipient is referred for hospice services, the recipient has 30 days during which the recipient may select to enroll in another managed care plan to access the hospice provider of the recipient's choice.

(4)?If a recipient is referred for placement in a nursing home or assisted living facility, the plan must inform the recipient of any facilities within the plan that have specific cultural or religious affiliations and, if requested by the recipient, make a reasonable effort to place the recipient in the facility of the recipient's choice.
