The New Jersey Department of Health’s Certificate of Need and Healthcare Facility Licensure program is proposing new rules which would implement the registration requirements.

The rules requires that all telemedicine and telehealth organizations operating in New Jersey register annually with the Department before providing services.  The proposed new rules would implement the requirement by establishing the registration procedures and the enforcement measures the Department may take against organizations who operate in New Jersey without registering.

The proposal appears in the April 6, 2020 issue of the New Jersey Register.  However, due to an administrative error, the proposal was published with the incorrect appendix.  Accordingly, the proposal will be republished in the April 20, 2020, issue of the New Jersey Register with the correct appendix and with an extension of the comment period.  The public will have until June 19, 2020, to comment on the proposal.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposal must submit written comments either electronically by June 19, 2020, to http://www.nj.gov/health/legal/ecomments.shtml or by regular mail postmarked on or before June 19, 2020, to Joy L. Lindo, Director, Office of Legal and Regulatory Compliance, New Jersey Department of Health, PO Box 360, Trenton, NJ 08625-0360.
