HFS - Rules
The State Board of Health is empowered to make all necessary and reasonable rules for Licensing Healthcare Providers. The Department of Health is the state agency responsible for implementing the Board's State rules.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) is empowered to make all necessary and reasonable rules for Certifying Healthcare Providers.
This site was developed to provide easy access to rules for providers. Health Facility Services is the agency that surveys Providers to assess compliance with rules established by the State and/or the Federal Government.
Rules Currently Being Amended, Repealed or Promulgated
The Board updates its rules on a continuing basis. The Board must follow the Administrative Procedure Act ("APA") to amend, repeal or adopt a rule. An essential part of the APA allows the public to comment on any rule being amended, repealed or proposed and the Board values your comments and questions.
We invite suggestions for rule improvement. Please use our email below to send suggestions, recommendations, or identify an issue in the rule.
