AFP-SC Certificate of Need Social Toolkit

Jan 29, 2021 by AFP

Certificate-of-need laws create limits on the number of healthcare facilities in the state, the number of beds in each facility, and the purchase of medical equipment. Ultimately, they reduce the number of patients that can be treated.

It is important South Carolina’s healthcare providers be able to expand capacity as much as is needed.

Use the tools in this digital toolkit to advocate for suspending South Carolina’s certificate of need laws and ensure South Carolinians get the quality health care they need.

Take Action 

  1. Tell your Lawmakers to suspend certificate of need by signing this petition.
  2. Personally ask 10 of your friends to also sign this petition.

South Carolina hospitals need to buy more equipment. They have the resources, but they still need a government permission slip.
This is absurd.
Sign our letter to lawmakers: Suspend certificate of need!
