Certificate of Need Rules

The proposed rule amendment and repeals are a result of the agency's Executive Order 70 rule review. The amendment is a technical change updating the section's physical address. The repeals eliminate rules that are obsolete and unenforceable as the statutory authority no longer exists.

Also, the proposed rule amendments to rules .1701-.1705 are a result of a petition to the agency to address the performance standards for heart-lung bypass machines when they are not operated specifically to provide open-heart surgery. Additionally, some technical changes have been made to these rules.
