SUMMARY AS SUBMITTED

BY PROMULGATING AGENCY.

The Department has revised R.61-15, Certification of Need for Health Facilities and Services, to incorporate applicable amendments from Act 278 of 2010 which amended Section 44-7-110 et seq., S.C. Code of Laws, 1976, effective July 1, 2010, and to make other revisions. The amendments include the following, in addition to incorporating provisions from Act 278: clarify Section 604 regarding non-transferability and voidance of a Certificate of Need; add provisions to submit information related to quality of patient care as part of Section 202.2.b; streamline the program by relaxing reporting requirements and extending the period for an exemption or non-applicability determination to be valid; revise the Part A- Questionnaire; and, make other changes to R.61-15 to improve the overall quality of the regulation; such as deleting references to federal acts that are obsolete, revisions for clarity, language style, consistency, grammar, punctuation, codification and other stylistic changes. Numerous changes were made as a result of comments received from the regulated community.

A Notice of Drafting for the proposed revision was published in the State Register on September 24, 2010.
