2013 House Bill 4787: Increase CON health facility rationing fees (Senate Roll Call 383)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 23 to 14 in the Senate on October 1, 2013, to increase from $1,500 to $3,000 the “base” fee for a hospital or other health care providers seeking government permission to open or expand a health care facility, or add certain capital-intensive equipment (like MRIs), under an existing state “Certificate of Need” rationing regime. The bill would also authorize additional fee increases of $5,000 for large projects, $3,000 for “complex” projects, $500 for “letter of intent” reviews, and more. These fees would then be indexed to inflation so that legislative authorization would not be required for future fee hikes.
