As a tax-exempt health care organization, you occupy a special legal niche. Whether you’re a hospital, health system, medical foundation, health plan, trade association, or issue or patient advocacy group, you operate with different rules, including adherence to community benefit standards, reporting uncompensated care costs and restrictions on advocacy activities. We help you comply with these rules as you seek to fulfill your charitable mission, respond to and manage inquiries and investigations by federal, state and local government agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service, and manage interactions (including fending-off unwarranted and unfair scrutiny) from consumer watchdog groups, labor unions, for-profit competitors and the media. We help you navigate regulatory requirements as you pursue strategic affiliations, partnerships and new nonprofit governance models to position your organization to succeed in the new health care economy. We understand the challenges you face, and we’re here to help.
We understand the challenges tax-exempt health care organizations face with continuing scrutiny into the charitable aspects of their operations from legislators, the IRS, state governments, watchdog groups, labor unions, for-profit competitors and the media. Our team works with clients to meet the challenges of compliance with federal and state rules.
In addition to our role directly counseling all types of hospitals and health care organizations, we are privileged to work with a number of trade associations in the nonprofit health care sector in addressing concerns and issues that have widespread significance for tax-exempt providers.
