Hospital Community Benefit Accountability Program Requirements

HB19-1320 requires non-profit tax exempt general hospitals, Denver Health Medical Center, and University of Colorado Hospital to convene a public meeting at least once each year to seek feedback regarding the hospital's community benefit activities. Each hospital must report to the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (the Department) certain community benefits, costs, and shortfalls in the preceding year, and the department is required to submit an annual summary report to subject matter committees of the general assembly.

For the first report we have delayed the due date to September 1, 2020 and modified the reporting requirements. For the report due July 1, 2021 the below requirements will be in place.
