Illinois Legislators Postpone Decision on CON Changes for ASCs
The Illinois legislative Joint Commission on Administrative Rules announced it would postpone its final decision regarding changes to the state's certificate of need rules related to ambulatory surgery centers.
This is a partial victory for the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association of Illinois, which opposes the changes. Proposed changes to the CON legislation would require ASCs to file a CON application to add specialties to the center. Since the proposal was announced, ASC leaders have reached out to the members of JCAR to express concerns about the changes.
The rule is also opposed by the IDPH ASTC Licensing Board.
JCAR will consider the rule changes at the next board meeting on Nov. 19. ASCAI encourages ASC leaders to meet with the CON board prior to the meeting and reiterate how the changes would impact them.
