Prohibits health care providers from developing, relocating, or adding additional beds to a long-term care facility, except in specified circumstances, without the prior approval of the Department of Health through the state’s Certificate of Need process. A Certificate of Need regime aims to reduce healthcare overheard by reducing unnecessary or duplicative services, but can be anticompetitive by increasing regulatory barriers for new entrants.
