Virginia
Financial Assistance Policy
Virginia may require hospitals to adopt or implement financial assistance policies as a condition of certificate of public need approval.

Although Virginia law does not generally require hospitals to adopt or implement financial assistance policies, a hospital that has agreed, as a condition of certificate of public need approval, to provide reduced services to indigents at reduced rates must comply with the terms of the agreement, subject to a civil penalty of $100 per violation per day of noncompliance. 12 Va.
