WVHCA Issues Moratorium on CON Applications for CyberKnife and Gamma Knife Services

According to the West Virginia Health Care Authority's newsletter the board issued an order dated April 12, 2006, delcaring a moratorium upon the processing of applications for CyberKnife and Gamma Knife services which shall continue until the development of State Health Plan Standards for evaluating these applications, or one hundred eighty days from the declaration of this moratorium, whichever is less.

UPDATE: On July 19 2006 the WVHCA issued an Order lifting the moratorium issued on June 28, 2006 imposing a moratorium on the development, acquisition or other establishment of Cyber Knife and Gamma Knife services pursuant to W.Va. Code 16-2D-5(k). The Order removes the moratorium effective June 28, 2006. Note: The dates don't coincide with the original date of the morotorium issued by the WVHCA - this might be a misprint in the WVHCA newsletter.
