A08536 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8536
 
SPONSOR: Gottfried
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to adding a represen- tative of women's health service providers on the public health and health planning council   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To add a representative of women's health service providers to the public health and health planning council.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Public Health Law § 220 to raise the number of appointed members of the Public Health and Health Planning Council (PHHPC) from 24 to 25, and to require that additional member to be a representative of women's health service providers. Section 2 is the effective date: immediate.   JUSTIFICATION: PHHPC makes decisions and recommendations to the Commissioner of Health regarding health care facility establishment, transfer, construction, and Services, and Health Department regulations. PHHPC currently has 24 members appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. About half of the appointed members represent specific catego- ries, such as nursing homes, behavioral health, and insurance companies; the other members are chosen from an extremely broad category encompass- ing practically the entirety of health care provision and payment. Currently, no member of PHHPC is required to have any expertise in women's health or facilities specializing in the care of women. The female half of the population has extensive unique health care issues and needs. PHHPC reviews applications for health care facilities like birth centers and reproductive health care clinics. Therefore, it is important that at least one member represent providers of women's health care services.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
