ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) draft proposal requiring hospitals to provide a list of identified health needs and describe the community served. Non-profit hospitals are said to be at risk of 50,000 U.S. dollars tax penalties annually for failure to complete community health needs assessment, under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2011. The hospitals are also required to outline how they conduct the assessment and to detail public input.
