In assessing an administrative penalty pursuant to Section 1280.1 or Section 1280.3 against a licensee of a health facility licensed under subdivision (a) of Section 1250 owned by a nonprofit corporation that shares an identical board of directors with a nonprofit health care service plan licensed pursuant to Chapter 2.2 (commencing with Section 1340), the director shall consider whether the deficiency arises from an incident that is the subject of investigation of, or has resulted in a fine to, the health care service plan by the Department of Managed Health Care. If the deficiency results from the same incident, the director shall limit the administrative penalty to take into consideration the penalty imposed by the Department of Managed Health Care.
