8. REPEAL Certificate
of Need (CON)

Under our Certificate of Need (CON) law, the state DHEC must determine that a need for a healthcare facility or service exists and issue a permit before a provider may move forward. Then, competitors can tie up needed projects in endless litigation after DHEC has said yes.

CON means constrained access and higher
prices for patients
. No wonder both the Trump and Obama Administrations called for repeal of CON.
