Community Benefit Reporting Requirement
Tennessee requires nonprofit hospitals to report charity care.

All hospitals licensed by the Department of Health must file a joint annual report “of the statistical particulars relative to their patients for the fiscal year,” including financial data relating to charity care and bad debt. Tenn. Code 68-11-310(a)(1); Tenn. Code §68-1-109; Tennessee Department of Health, Joint Annual Report of Hospitals form, p. 18.
