Kentucky’s Governor Signs Bill Allowing CCRCs to Offer Home Health Services

In April, Governor Steve Beshear (D-Ky.) signed into law a bill allowing Kentucky continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) to provide home health services to on-campus residents.

KY House Bill 388, introduced  in February of this year, also amends KRS 216B.020 to exempt CCRCs from needing a certificate of need in order to provide home health services to its on-campus residents, and repeals 216B.335, a limitation on the establishment of nursing home beds.

The bill has three sponsors, state representatives Jesse Crenshaw, Robert R. Damron, and Ruth Ann Palumbo. In March, it was signed by the state’s Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate before being delivered to the governor and eventually signed on April 11.
