2018 Kentucky General Assembly Final Report & Voting Record
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 8:56 AM
KHA had a victorious 2018 legislative session with KHA priorities becoming law. This success was made possible through the assistance of you and the entire KHA membership. KHA’s Legislative Platform priorities of an updated methodology for the distribution of DSH funding, peer review process confidentiality, a streamlined physician and provider credentialing process, telehealth legislation and a streamlined certificate of need process were all passed into law. New laws passed by the General Assembly that do not include an emergency clause or a different specified effective date go into effect on July 14.
We appreciate your help on legislative and regulatory issues affecting hospitals. Your work in this process is invaluable. When hospitals combine their strength and collectively express their concerns to elected officials, more can be accomplished.
