Hospitals reporting more charity care data

Hospitals in Ohio and elsewhere are reporting more of their expenditures on charity care and community benefits, reports FierceHealthcare. The change is part of the new reporting requirements on Form 990 tax returns for nonprofit organizations, and also allows a clearer narrative for how the money is spent. "Hospitals welcome the opportunity to tell the story to their communities about all the different ways they are serving their communities," said Ohio Hospital Association spokesperson Mary Yost. "It's not just in charity care that they provide." Article
