Finger Lakes Regional Emergency Medical Services Council, Inc


The purpose of this policy is to outline the procedures and payments for Certificates of Need, Expansion of Territory, Transfer of Territory, Conversion of Municipal Certificates of Need to permanent Certificates of Need, and to explain billing/payment schedules.

The Finger Lakes Regional Emergency Medical Services Council is required in Article 30 NYS Department of Health to due diligence in determining the need for all areas of Certificates of Need in the Finger Lakes region.  There is little or no funding provided by the state therefore, to fulfill the statutory requirement FLREMSC must impose charges for certain activities.

It is the policy of FLREMSC to impose reasonable charges upon application for the due diligence activities required for certificate of need/operating authority, including but not limited to new applications, territorial expansion, ALS first response, transfers of operating authority and all associates expenses.  FLREMSC will remit any unused funds to the applicant that exceeds the actual expenses incurred.  FLREMSC also reserves the right to impose monthly any additional expenses beyond the required deposits herein enumerated in the actual amounts incurred monthly by FLREMSC.

Reasonable charges included but not limited to: stenographers, record reproduction, postage, rental fees for hall, hearing officer fees, appeals fees, hearing broadcast fees and attorneys’ fees.  In the event that the FLREMSC recommendation to grant or deny operating authority is challenged before an administrative law judge, FLREMSC has the option of submitting a response and if so, the applicant is held responsible for all expenses including attorney’s fees and any appeals costs for the FLREMSC to defend its recommendation.  In the event the FLREMS recommendation is not accepted and the applicant chooses to appeal the determination, any cost incurred by FLREMSC to participate in the appeal as an appellant or witness must be paid by the applicant.

All applicants must remit payment of the required deposits with their application as stated.  All expenses will be itemized to the applicant each month.  Additional charges must be paid on a monthly basis within 30 days or additional interest will be charged at a rate of twelve per cent (24%) per annum. A statement of expenses will be provided to the applicant each month on or about the first business day and interest charges will be applied 30 days thereafter
