Hospital Community Benefits after the ACA: The State Law Landscape


This is the sixth issue brief in a series resleased by Hilltop’s Hospital Community Benefit Program. This brief is a companion to the online tool, Community Benefit State Law Profiles, and presents the Profiles’ findings and begins the analysis—in effect, viewing state community benefit standards through the lens of the ACA—to facilitate a better understanding of each state’s community benefit landscape and its significance in the context of national health reform. The other issue briefs in the Hospital Community Benefits after the ACA series are The Emerging Federal Framework, Building on State Experience, 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.
