Is Certificate of Need required to open a long-term care facility?

A facility cannot be licensed without first receiving Certificate of Need approval; therefore, it is a crucial step in the process. Compliance with Certificate of Need requirements is required before any new Skilled Nursing Facility, Intermediate Care Facility, Assisted Living Facility, or Residential Care Facility can be licensed as well as for the addition of beds to existing licensed facilities.
