|New Hampshire requires nonprofit hospitals to develop and annually submit community benefit plans.
Nonprofit hospitals and other health care charitable trusts must annually submit to the Director of Charitable Trusts a community benefit plan developed on forms supplied by the Attorney General. The plan must take into consideration public input and identify the health care needs considered in developing the plan; identify community benefit activities the hospital will undertake along with an estimate of its cost; and specify which needs identified by the community needs assessment process these activities are intended to address.
