Assembly Health Committee Hearing is Long on Rhetoric, Short on Facts on Charity Care Bill
PR Newswire

The California Hospital Association (CHA) today released a Fact Check to correct inaccurate claims made by proponents of Assembly Bill 1952, a measure that would impose a 5 percent mandate for charity care on most not-for-profit hospitals. The bill would create a one-size-fits-all charity care requirement across diverse communities in California. “This bill mandates that hospitals meet prescriptive program requirements that take away from a hospital’s ability to meet the unique needs of its community,” said CHA President/CEO C. Duane Dauner.
