Assembly Considering New Bills on Charity Care Requirements
California Healthline

The California Legislature is considering two bills (AB 1952; AB 503) that call for stricter guidelines over the amount of charity care not-for-profit acute care facilities must provide in order to maintain their tax-exempt status, Payers & Providers reports.

The bills are based off of a charity care bill (AB 975) that failed to advance last year (Payers & Providers, 3/20).

The stalled bill — by Assembly members Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) and Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) — would have increased the level of charity care not-for-profit acute care facilities must provide and tightened hospital reporting requirements.
