Hospital Community Benefits after the ACA: Building on State Experience

April 28, 2011

This is the second issue brief in a series released by Hilltop’s Hospital Community Benefit Program. It takes a closer look at three aspects of community benefits affected by ยง9007 of the Affordable Care Act, "Additional Requirements for Nonprofit Hospitals": community health needs assessment; hospital financial assistance and billing and collection policies; and community benefit reporting and oversight strategies. The brief considers each of these requirements against a backdrop of federal and state law and practice.

The other issue briefs in the Hospital Community Benefits after the ACA series are The Emerging Federal Framework, Partnerships for Community Health Improvement, Schedule H and Hospital Community Benefit—Opportunities and Challenges for the States, and Community Building and the Root Causes of Poor Health.
