Certificate of Need (CON)

The Certificate of Need (CON) program is intended to achieve three goals: (1) to measure and define need, (2) to control costs, and (3) to guarantee access to healthcare services.  Georgia began reviewing health care projects in 1975 under Section 1122 of the 1972 Social Security Act Amendments and Georgia's CON program was established by the General Assembly in 1979 (O.C.G.A. Title 31, Chapter 6).  Additional information is available from the CON Fact Sheet and from the links below.
