Emergency Medical Services Stroke Care Rulemaking (Exempt)

On April 12, 2011, Governor Brewer signed HB2157 (Laws 2011, Chapter 47), which requires the Department to "adopt rules relating to the coordination of stroke care services between emergency medical services providers and hospitals." The Department had exempt rulemaking authority until July 2013 to comply with these requirements. The Department has made rules to comply with Laws 2011, Ch. 47 in Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.) Title 9, Chapter 25, Article 6.

The Department completed a draft of the rules and accepted comments on the substance of the rules from the end of December, 2012, until March 1, 2013, through an online survey. To ensure that the public had notice of the opportunity for reviewing and commenting on the draft rules, the Department also submitted a Notice of Public Information for publication in the February 1, 2013, issue of the Arizona Administrative Register. The comments and the Department's responses are provided. The Notice of Exempt Rulemaking for this rulemaking was published on April 5, 2013, the date the rules became effective.
