Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
Certificate of Need (CON) is a state regulatory program intended to balance the cost, quality, and access of Michigan's health care system. This is to ensure that needed services and facilities afford quality health care for the residents of the state. Certificate of Need is governed by Part 222 of PA 368 of the Public Acts of 1978, as amended.
The eleven member Commission, appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate, has the responsibility to develop, approve, disapprove, or revise CON Review Standards. The Review Standards are used by the CON Program Section to issue decisions on CON applications. The Commission evaluates the Review Standards for modification on a three-year rotating schedule as identified on the Commission Workplan. The Commission also has the authority to make recommendations to revise the list of covered clinical services subject to CON review.
