Description

Certificate of public need; criteria for determining need and method of filing. Replaces existing criteria for determining need for the purposes of a Certificate of Public Need with six new criteria including (i) the extent to which the proposed service or facility will provide or increase accessibility to the residents of the area to be served and the effects on accessibility in areas having distinct and unique geographic, socioeconomic, cultural, transportation, and other barriers to care; (ii) the level of documented community support from the citizens, businesses, and governmental leaders; (iii) the extent to which the proposed service or facility will impact the costs of and charges for providing quality health services; (iv) the extent to which the proposed service or facility increases institutional competition; (v) the extent to which the proposed service or facility will promote quality assurance and cost effectiveness through improvements or innovations in the financing and delivery of heath services; and (vi) the extent to which the proposed service or facility will increase service to indigent populations. This bill also allows for the electronic filing of applications for a Certificate of Public Need. Read the Bill »
