Recommended 2019 SMFP Need Determinations and CON Application Filing Schedules

11.6.2018

On October 4, 2018, the State Health Coordinating Council (SHCC) met to make its final recommendations for the proposed need determinations in the 2019 State Medical Facilities Plan (SMFP). Those recommendations, which are listed below, include need determinations of interest to a number of different types of providers, as well as the CON application filing dates. There are two changes to the need determination recommendations since the meeting, based on updated data collected by Agency staff: (1) the need determination for 50 Adult Care Home Beds in Pamlico County has been eliminated due to the licensure of previously-approved beds shortly before the SHCC meeting; and (2) there now is a need determination for three Child/Adolescent Chemical Dependency (Substance Abuse) Treatment Beds due to updated facility data received after the SHCC meeting.

The SHCC will submit these need recommendations to Governor Cooper, who ultimately approves the annual SMFP. The Governor’s approval typically is issued in late December, effective January 1, 2019.
