                   IN ASSEMBLY
 
                                      June 7, 2012
                                       ___________
 
        Introduced  by  COMMITTEE  ON RULES -- (at request of M. of A. Kavanagh,
          Gottfried) -- read once and referred to the Committee on Health
 
        AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to review of eligible
          federally qualified health center capital projects
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 

     1    Section  1.  Section  2807-z  of  the  public  health law, as added by
     2  section 36 of part D of chapter 56 of the laws of 2012,  is  amended  to
     3  read as follows:
     4    § 2807-z. [Limited or administrative review] Review of eligible feder-
     5  ally  qualified  health center capital projects.  1. Notwithstanding any
     6  provision of this chapter or regulations or any other state law or regu-
     7  lation, for any eligible capital project as defined in  subdivision  six
     8  of this section, the department shall have thirty days of receipt of the
     9  certificate  of  need application for a limited or administrative review
    10  to deem such application complete.  If  the  department  determines  the
    11  application  is  incomplete  or  that  more information is required, the
    12  department shall notify the applicant in writing within thirty  days  of

    13  the  date  of the application's submission, and the applicant shall have
    14  twenty business days to  provide  additional  information  or  otherwise
    15  correct the deficiency in the application.
    16    2.  For an eligible capital project requiring a limited or administra-
    17  tive review, within ninety days of the department deeming  the  applica-
    18  tion  complete, the department shall make a decision to approve [(and in
    19  the case of limited reviews)] or  disapprove  the  certificate  of  need
    20  application for such project. If the department determines to disapprove
    21  the  project,  the basis for such disapproval shall be provided in writ-
    22  ing; however, disapproval shall not be based on  the  incompleteness  of
    23  the  application.  If  the department fails to take action to approve or
    24  disapprove the application within ninety days of the certificate of need

    25  application being  deemed  complete,  the  application  will  be  deemed
    26  approved.
    27    3.  For  an  eligible  capital  project  requiring  full review by the
    28  [Public Health and Health Planning Council] council, the certificate  of
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD16146-02-2

        A. 10606                            2
 
     1  need  application  shall  be  placed  on the next [PHHPC] council agenda
     2  following the department deeming the application complete.
     3    4.  Where  the  commissioner  or  department requires the applicant to
     4  submit a contingency submission for an  eligible  capital  project,  the

     5  commissioner  or department shall have thirty days to review and approve
     6  or disapprove the contingency submission. If the commissioner or depart-
     7  ment determines that the contingency submission is incomplete, it  shall
     8  so  notify  the  applicant in writing and provide the applicant with ten
     9  business days to correct the deficiency or provide  additional  informa-
    10  tion.  If  the  commissioner  or department determines to disapprove the
    11  contingency [of the] submission, the basis for such disapproval shall be
    12  provided in writing; however, disapproval shall  not  be  based  on  the
    13  incompleteness  of  the  application.  Within  fifteen  days of complete
    14  contingency satisfaction, the commissioner or department shall  transmit
    15  the final approval letter to the applicant.
    16    5. The department shall develop expedited pre-opening survey processes

    17  for  eligible  capital projects approved under [subdivision one of] this
    18  section, but under no circumstances shall pre-opening survey reviews  be
    19  scheduled  later  than  thirty  days  after final approval, construction
    20  completion and notification of such completion of the department.
