New Rules Related to the CON Program

Posted by Adam Freed on Wednesday, February 4, 2015

On January 14, 2015, new rules went into effect related to Iowa's Certificate of Need ("CON") program.  The new rules are available in the Iowa Administrative Code at https://www.legis.iowa.gov/docs/ACO/chapter/02-04-2015.641.202.pdf.  The health law attorneys at BrownWinick continually monitor developments related to the CON rules and other issues that impact health care providers. 

As a reminder, the next meetings of the State Health Facilities Council are scheduled on February 23, May 6, and September 22.  In order to have a project considered at the May meeting, letters of intent are due at 4:30 pm on Monday, February 16, 2015.

If you have any questions regarding the new CON rules or their possible impact on your facility, or if you are considering a project for one of the upcoming CON hearings, please do not hesitate to contact us.
