Charitable Hospitals under the ACA and Section 501

Thanks to the support of The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, HLA’s Litigation Director, Lorianne Sainsbury-Wong, spoke to legal and medical practitioners at the University of Massachusetts Medical School through the Massachusetts Bar Association’s 4-16-15 Central MA Health Care Symposium.  Lorianne discussed the new compliance standards imposed on not-for-profit hospitals under the Affordable Care Act.  Charitable hospitals must comply with I.R.C Section 501(r), which requires financial assistance policies for low and moderate income patients, restrictions on medical charges, and limitations on billing and collection actions. A copy of Lorianne’s PowerPoint can be accessed here.
