Tell Your Lawmaker: Remove South Carolina's Certificate of Need (CON) Regulations

Once it became clear that COVID-19 could overwhelm our hospitals, Governor McMaster temporarily waived SC regulations that restrict hospitals and their ability to add capacity to their facilities.

According to current law, SC hospitals and medical practices cannot add any beds to their facility without obtaining approval from the state.

Why do we put these restrictions on our medical facilities?

The answer: Certificate of Need (CON) laws require it. And South Carolina has some of the most restrictive in the country, regulating 18 different services!

Research shows that CON laws lead to higher costs and less access for patients. Tell your lawmaker that these anti-competitive, outdated laws must be repealed!
