Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 339 - This act requires the Division of Aging to establish a managed system of needs-based assessments for new long-term care facilities. This assessment will be developed within non-specific geographic areas where population density or demand dictates additional beds. This procedure should include a hearing and appeals process for those facilities for which the Division finds no need. After August 28, 2001, the managed system will be implemented and Intermediate Care Facilities, Residential Care Facilities I and II, and Skilled Nursing Facilities will not be required to obtain a certificate of need.

The Division is required to post facility inspection results on its website. In addition, the Division is required to establish up to six aging in place and stand-alone Alzheimer's pilot projects.
