Senator Asks IRS for Update on Nonprofit Hospital Regulations

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent the attached letter to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding the status of several reforms to requirements for nonprofit hospitals included in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Sen. Grassley’s letter notes that guidance for a number of ACA-mandated requirements has not been finalized and asks for an update on the status of all relevant regulations, including any that have not yet been proposed. Sen. Grassley also questioned the IRS regarding the status of ACA-required reports to Congress on the effectiveness of the nonprofit hospital reforms. These reports were due in both federal fiscal year 2012 and 2013 but were not released to Congress.
