Another attempt to repeal CON

The Birmingham News reports of the Alabama Policy Institute's mission to repeal the state's Certificate of Need law.

"there's no evidence the regulation has reduced health care costs and some evidence that it increases them. Instead, the laws have limited innovation and patients' choice...Michael Morrisey, an health economist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham

This joins a recent article by Fierce Healthcare and the Florida Governor's work to end his state's certificate of need program.

Thirteen other sates have recently repealed the CON.

Please see my recent blog post on CON.
