2. Upon receipt of an application under subsection 1, the state health council shall schedule a public hearing, send notice to all interested parties, and give public notice of the hearing by publication in the official newspaper of each county in the pilot project area.  At the hearing, the council shall accept written and oral testimony.  The council shall review the application and all testimony presented at the hearing and approve, disapprove, or modify and approve the application based on criteria established by the council.  The criteria must address the availability and use of health personnel, facilities, and services.

3. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, upon approval of an application submitted under subsection 1, the state health council, in consultation with the state health officer and any other public or private entity consulted by the state health council, shall set the standards for the delivery of health care services by the pilot project.  The standards may not adversely affect the state's participation in federal Medicare and Medicaid programs.  No more than three separate projects may be operational at any time and no project may be operational for longer than five years.
