§ 5210.5. Application review process.

 (a)  Any facility intending to provide partial hospitalization services shall file an application for a certificate of compliance with the Department under Chapter 20 (relating to licensure or approval of facilities and agencies). A facility shall meet both the requirements of Chapter 20 and this chapter to obtain a certificate. Submission of an application does not constitute a certificate to operate pending Departmental approval. Facilities shall be inspected a minimum of once per year, but are subject to visit by the Department’s designee at other times to ensure continuing conformance of the operations of the facility with these regulations. The Department may request the facility to provide information concerning programs and fiscal operations at the Department’s discretion.

 (b)  Programs currently operating under preexisting approval shall have 3 months after the effective date of this chapter to meet the requirements found in this chapter. Programs requesting a certificate under this chapter have 6 months to meet the minimum size of program section of these standards. Other program requirements as set forth in this chapter shall be met before a certificate can be granted.
