    Certificate of Need


    The Agency for Health Care Administration has projected a fixed need pool for hospice programs, defined in accordance with Sections 400.601-400.602, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and 408.031-408.045, F.S.  Fixed need pool projections are for hospice programs planned for January 2021, pursuant to the provisions of Rule 59C-1.0355, Florida Administrative Code.  Letters of intent to apply for Certificates of Need pursuant to this notice must be filed with the Certificate of Need Program Office, 2727 Mahan Drive, Building 1, Room 229, MS 28, Tallahassee, Florida 32308, on or before 5:00 p.m., October 21, 2019.

    Any person who identifies an error in the fixed need pool numbers must advise the agency of the error within ten (10) days of the publication.  If the agency concurs with the error, the fixed need pool number will be adjusted and republished in the first available edition of the Florida Administrative Register.  Failure to notify the agency of the error during this ten day period waives a person's right to raise the error at subsequent proceedings.  Any other adjustments will be made in the first cycle subsequent to identification of the error including those errors identified through administrative hearings or final judicial review.

    Any person whose substantial interest is affected by this action and who timely advised the agency of an error in the action has a right to request an administrative hearing pursuant to Section 120.57, F.S.  In order to request a proceeding under Section 120.57, F.S., a request for an administrative hearing must state with specificity which issues of material fact or law are in dispute.  All requests for hearings shall be made to the Agency for Health Care Administration and must be filed with the agency clerk at 2727 Mahan Drive, Building 3, Room 3431, MS 3, Tallahassee, Florida 32308. All requests for hearings must be filed with the agency clerk within 21 days of this publication or the right to a hearing is waived.
