Chapter XXI License Fee Revisions – Request for Comment

House Bill 12-1294 directed the Department to provide an appropriate credit or reduced fee to a health facility that achieves state license renewal through deemed status. The hospice rule already had this discount so it will remain intact. The Division is proposing a change, however, for the licensing of hospices that provide both home and inpatient care in order to streamline the license process, avoid the necessity of two separate licenses, and offer the deeming discount mandated by statute.

Please submit any comments on the draft rule changes by Wednesday, April 30, 2014. You may review the draft rule changes at:
