Licensing Health Facilities or Agencies
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Community and Health Systems)

There are six rule sets for licensing health facilities and agencies. Although most of them have undergone periodic review and revision, it has been too long since a comprehensive review and revision was done to assure they comport with current practice standards, to harmonize them with current federal law and regulations, and to reflect the current organization of state licensing functions. Some of these rules are obsolete and there is a significant amount of duplication between rule sets. The purpose of promulgating a single new rule set for health facility licensing is to better protect the health, safety, and welfare of individuals receiving care and services in or from a health facility or agency, and to assure the medical accountability for reimbursed care provided by a certified health facility or agency participating in a federal or state health program. The new rule set will focus on core principles and standards of health facility licensing; fulfill statutory requirements; comport with current practice standards; harmonize with federal law and regulations; and, be free of redundant, obsolete, or unnecessary language. The new rule set will replace the following six rule sets.
