Community Benefit Spending is a requirement of 501(c)3, aka nonprofit, hospitals in order to maintain their nonprofit tax-exempt status. While the regulation for Community Benefit Spending comes from federal law via the Affordable Care Act, states have an interest in the well-being of their citizens and thus in ensuring that health care organizations are filling their requirements. After reviewing the background materials, draft a paper that addresses the following:
- What are the expectations of hospitals regarding Community Benefit Spending as established by policy?
- What efforts have been taken by states to ensure that hospitals are adhering to these expectations?
- Find your state (California) on the Community Benefit Insight website (http://www.communitybenefitinsight.org/). Provide a detailed overview of the data provided on your state’s performance from 2010-2016.
- Assess how your (California) state performed during this time.
