Health Care Planning for NYS

The Committee on Health Planning
The Health Planning Committee advises the Council on need-methodologies, health facility plans, and emerging health care issues. Monitors major health care initiatives and advises the Council on progress and/or problems.

The Committee has taken on the challenge of easing the regulations for some aspects of the Certificate of Need process regarding capital projects. They want to make recommendations to the Governor to eliminate the long period of time it takes for construction projects to go through the review process, to unify reviews that require multiple agency reviews and to raise the financial level of projects requiring review. The Committee is interested in hearing from stakeholders, including payers, that have an interest in
what is needed in their communities.
While they are discussing this, the Medicaid Redesign committee is asking the governor for more resources for the DOH.
