What Counts as Community Benefit? (2019)

Sponsored by CHA and Vizient

Does it count as community benefit? What are the guiding principles for reporting (and not reporting) programs and activities as community benefit? Presenters Trina Hackensmith of Lyon Software and Julie Trocchio of the Catholic Health Association will review the basic guidelines from the IRS Form 990, Schedule H Instructions and from CHA's Guide for Planning and Reporting Community Benefit that can help answer these questions. They will also review the categories of community benefit and what should and should not be reported in each, go over recent questions submitted to the CHA What Counts Hotline and discuss some of the "gray areas" of community benefit.
