A client alert authored by Washington, D.C. associate Tiffany Forte and partner T.J. Sullivan was published in BNA’s Health Law Reporter.

The November 2012 alert, titled, “Implementing Section 501(r)’s Financial Assistance, Limitation on Charges, and Billing and Collections Requirements,” discusses 501(r) of the Internal Revenue Code, which was introduced by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) to impose additional requirements on hospitals recognized as charitable organizations.

Tiffany and T.J. discuss the proposed regulations released by the IRS in June 2012 that provide guidance on how to satisfy these requirements, as well as the reaction from hospitals and patient advocates.
