The Types of Facilities Requiring State Licensure Continues to Grow
The number and nature of health care facilities requiring licensure is steadily increasing. In New Jersey alone there are nearly 40 types of facilities requiring licensure with the State. Operating a licensed facility not only ensures compliance with state and federal laws and regulations, but also helps maximize insurance reimbursement in a variety of ways.
