  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Section 9-e of part B of chapter 57 of the  laws  of  2018,
amending  the  public health law and other laws relating to registration
of licensed home care services agencies, is amended to read as follows:
  § 9-e. Effective April 1, 2018, the commissioner of health shall place
a moratorium on the processing  and  approval  of  applications  seeking
licensure  of  a  licensed home care services agency pursuant to section
3605 of the public health  law  that  have  not  received  establishment
approval  or  contingent establishment approval by the public health and
health planning council, except for: (a) an application  seeking  licen-
sure  of  a licensed home care services agency that is submitted with an
application for approval as an assisted living program authorized pursu-
ant to section 461-l of the social  services  law;  (b)  an  application
seeking  approval  to  transfer  ownership for an existing licensed home
care services agency that has been licensed and operating for a  minimum
of  five years for the purpose of consolidating ownership of two or more
licensed home care services agencies; [and] (c) an  application  seeking
licensure  of  a  home  care  services agency where the applicant demon-
strates  to  the  satisfaction  of  the  commissioner  of  health   that
submission  of  the application to the public health and health planning
council for consideration would  be  appropriate  on  grounds  that  the
application addresses a serious concern such as a lack of access to home
care services in the geographic area or a lack of adequate and appropri-
ate  care,  language and cultural competence, or special needs services;
AND (D) ANY OTHER APPLICATION THAT THE COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH, IN HIS OR
HER DISCRETION, DEEMS TO BE CONSISTENT WITH GOALS FOR CONSOLIDATION  AND
IMPROVING CARE DELIVERY. Such moratorium shall expire on March 31, 2020.
