NC DHSR HPCON: Certificate of Need
The North Carolina Certificate of Need law prohibits health care providers from acquiring, replacing, or adding to their facilities and equipment, except in specified circumstances, without the prior approval of the Department of Health and Human Services. Prior approval is also required for the initiation of certain medical services. The law restricts unnecessary increases in health care costs and limits unnecessary health services and facilities based on geographic, demographic and economic considerations. The fundamental premise of the CON law is that increasing health care costs may be controlled by governmental restrictions on the unnecessary duplication of medical facilities. A CON is required before any upgrading or expansion of existing health service facilities or services, which involves a capital expenditure above specified minimums. Administration of the CON law is entrusted to the Department of Health and Human Services. The Certificate of Need Section in the department’s Division of Health Service Regulation is responsible for its implementation.
