Charity Care and 501(r) – Avoiding Attorney General and IRS Trouble
The IRS is auditing scores of hospitals across the country for compliance with 501(r). The Washington State Attorney General recently sued two hospitals for failure to comply with the state’s charity care laws.
Columbia Legal Services recently published a report indicating failures to comply with the state’s charity care laws in 12 out of 20 Washington hospitals.
We’ll look at these three situations to discuss what every Washington State hospital must do (or not do) to comply with both state and federal laws, and what each hospital can do to avoid problems with government regulators.
1. Understand key issues regarding compliance with Washington State’s charity care laws.
2. Understand key issues regarding compliance with Internal Revenue Code section 501(r).
3. Use publicized problems to identify areas of concern.

Transforming the Front-End Revenue Cycle Model
Managing the Revenue Cycle performance while transforming from “Back-End” to “Front –End” focus and creating a unified Patient-Centered experience is a serious challenge. It means we must shift attention and resources from chasing dollars post-service to collecting pre-service from patients who are facing incredibly high deductibles in a struggling economy.
Already strained Patient Access teams. How do we transform our silo approach to the Revenue Cycle to the high-performing unified, patient-centered team we need to continue serving our communities?
Learn how to move from Current State vs Future State, Transformation Blueprint, Patient Experience and Sustaining Results to make a difference in your facility.
This evolved from the tragic story of Vanessa Kay Behan, a Spokane girl who died from child abuse injuries at the age of two. Following her death, a group of local business people established the Crisis Nursery so that parents would have a safe place to bring their children in the face of crises.
