Dear Hospital Partners,

House Bill (HB) 19-1320, regarding Hospital Community Benefit Accountability, requires certain hospitals to convene a public meeting at least once a year to seek feedback regarding the hospital's community benefit activities and report back to the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (the Department) on community benefits, costs and shortfalls from the preceding year.

The Department would like to thank the reporting hospitals for working with us as we collect all the data for the first Hospital Community Benefit Accountability Report and  would like to remind reporting hospitals to post their individual report to their public website.

The Department is finalizing the summary report that will be submitted to the General Assembly on Jan 15, 2020. Once submitted this final report will be made available on the Hospital Community Benefit Accountability webpage.

As we look to next year's report, we welcome feedback on the reporting template and the submission process.

Please direct any questions to myself or Cynthia Miley

Thank you,

Nancy Dolson
Special Financing Division Director
