Section 501(r) of the Internal Revenue Code was enacted in March 2010 and mandates that nonprofit hospitals comply with new requirements to maintain their tax-exempt status. Hospitals are expected to understand the key components of community health needs assessments (CHNAs), comply with new billing limitations, and adopt certain financial assistance and emergency care policies and procedures. Knowing the best key practices on how to comply with these new requirements will give you the chance to mitigate the risk of potential pitfalls and ultimately save your tax-exempt status.
The Knowledge Group is producing a LIVE webcast which will explore the issues and concerns surrounding the recently proposed regulations under Section 501(r). "Changes to Hospital Tax Exemption: Best Practices Under Section 501(r) LIVE Webcast" is a must-attend event for nonprofit hospitals attempting to comply with the new requirements of Section 501(r).
