|Financial Assistance Policy Dissemination|
|West Virginia nonprofit hospitals that rely on the provision of charity care to establish their property’s “charitable use” and qualification for property tax exemption must disseminate their financial assistance policies.
West Virginia requires that such hospitals post in the emergency and admitting areas a notice containing a statement of the existence of their obligation to provide free and below-cost care and of the criteria and mechanism for receiving such care. Written notices must also be provided to each person admitted or treated who does not demonstrate payment coverage under governmental programs or private insurance. W. Va. Code R. §110-3-188.8.131.52.
