Certificate of Need

A partial repeal of Certificate of Need healthcare regulations will be removed from Senate Bill 361 when it reaches the floor next week, Sen Joyce Krawiec, R-Forsyth, said Thursday. Known as the “Health Care Expansion Act of 2019,” the bill initially called for a full repeal of CON regulations, but it was later scaled back to impact a select number of healthcare facilities. Krawiec explained during Thursday’s Senate Rules Committee meeting that it has become apparent that the change needs additional work...

With the CON provisions gone, the remaining elements of SB 361 would make changes to adult care home inspections and add North Carolina to a seven-state Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact, which allows psychologists to serve patients across state lines without needing licenses from multiple states. Several Rules Committee members said the removal of the CON provision allowed them to support the bill. (Colin Campbell, THE INSIDER, 6/20/19)
