150.85(4) (4)Standards for certification.
150.85(4)(a)(a) The department shall issue a certificate of public advantage for a cooperative agreement if it determines all of the following:
150.85(4)(a)1. 1. That the benefits likely to result from the agreement substantially outweigh any disadvantages attributable to a reduction in competition likely to result.
150.85(4)(a)2. 2. That any reduction in competition likely to result from the agreement is reasonably necessary to obtain the benefits likely to result.
150.85(4)(b) (b) In order to determine that the criterion under par. (a) 1. is met, the department shall find that at least one of the following is likely to result from the cooperative agreement:
150.85(4)(b)1. 1. The quality of health care provided to residents of the state will be enhanced.
150.85(4)(b)2. 2. A hospital, if any, and health care facilities that customarily serve the communities in the area likely affected by the cooperative agreement will be preserved.

150.85(4)(b)4. 4. The utilization of health care resources and equipment in the area likely affected by the cooperative agreement will improve.
150.85(4)(b)5. 5. Duplication of health care resources in the area likely affected by the cooperative agreement will be avoided.

150.85(4)(c)1. 1. The likely adverse impact, if any, on the ability of health maintenance organizations, preferred provider plans, persons performing utilization review or other health care payers to negotiate optimal payment and service arrangements with hospitals and other health care providers.
150.85(4)(c)2. 2. Whether any reduction in competition among physicians, allied health professionals or other health care providers is likely to result directly or indirectly from the cooperative agreement.
150.85(4)(c)3. 3. Whether any arrangements that are less restrictive as to competition could likely achieve substantially the same benefits or a more favorable balance of benefits over disadvantages than that likely to be achieved from reducing competition.
150.85(5) (5)Certificate revocation.
150.85(5)(a)(a) If the department determines that the benefits resulting from or likely to result from a cooperative agreement under a certificate of public advantage no longer outweigh any disadvantages attributable to any actual or potential reduction in competition resulting from the agreement, the department may revoke the certificate of public advantage governing the agreement and, if revoked, shall so notify the holders of the certificate. A holder of a certificate of public advantage whose certificate is revoked by the department may contest the revocation by sending a written request for hearing under s. 227.44 to the division of hearings and appeals created under s. 15.103 (1), within 10 days after receipt of the notice of revocation.
150.85(5)(b) (b) If a party to a cooperative agreement that is issued a certificate of public advantage terminates its participation in the agreement, the party shall file a notice of termination with the department within 30 days after the termination takes effect. If all parties to the cooperative agreement terminate their participation in the agreement, the department shall revoke the certificate of public advantage for the agreement.
