Now that the moratorium on Certificates of Need for Nursing Homes has been lifted, nursing homes seeking to add beds must participate in AHCA’s CON batching cycles. The first of these batching cycles since the lifting of the moratorium is rapidly approaching. On October 3, 2014, less than a month from now, AHCA will publish its Summary Need Projections in the F.A.W. Once this is published, nursing homes seeking to add beds to their facilities need to comply with a series of rules and deadlines in order to compete for the fixed number of beds available in their district. To learn more about the rules and deadlines read our article here.
A nursing home wishing to compete in this batching cycle needs to begin preparing now. If you need help competing in this upcoming batching cycle, contact the experienced counsel at Smith & Associates.
