On July 1, 2019, Indiana’s Certificate of Need (CON) program for comprehensive care facilities (nursing facilities) went into effect. The law does not apply to residential care facilities (assisted living). The CON program is the result of Senate Enrolled Act 190 from the 2018 session of the Indiana General Assembly, which delayed the effective date of the CON program until implementing regulations were adopted by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH). Those implementing regulations became effective July 1, 2019.
The CON law requires the ISDH and applicants for a CON to adhere to specific timelines. The review process will occur every year and begin on July 1 and last until the following June 30.
The Indiana State Department of Health has also created a Certificate of Need website with the Bed Need Analysis, CON Application, and applicable statutes and regulations, and the July 2021 Bed Need Analysis can be found here.
