Obamacare installs new scrutiny, fines for charitable hospitals that treat uninsured people

A new provision in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, which takes effect under Obamacare, sets new standards of review and installs new financial penalties for tax-exempt charitable hospitals, which devote a minimum amount of their expenses to treat uninsured poor people. Approximately 60 percent of American hospitals are currently nonprofit.

Charity for the uninsured is one of the factors that could discourage enrollment in Obamacare, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance or else face new taxes themselves from the IRS.

“It requires tax-exempt hospitals to do a community needs survey and file additional paperwork with the IRS every three years. This is to prove that the charitable hospital is still needed in their geographical area — ‘needed’ as defined by Obamacare and overseen by IRS bureaucrats,” said John Kartch, spokesman for Americans for Tax Reform.

Hey, government health care won't be so bad!  You'll get used to it after a while.

I wonder where they got this idea from.  Isn't that what Michelle did for the University of Chicago?

What a bunch of destable ****s.

Obamacare: The new STD.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

I think so.

The goal is to destroy charity so the government will have to provide.

I think so.

The goal is to destroy faith based charity so the government will have to provide.

I see what you did there.

Right on cue, PBS's program "Independent Lens" runs a show about public hospital emergency rooms.  Wow, aren't you glad we have ObamaCare now?

Any private charity, it just happens that most are faith based.

I don't think I have ever heard a more ridiculous piece of legislation.

But we had to pass it to find out what was in it. ::)

Exactly...when they passed it, there was language in the bill/law that said "to be determined" by the Sec. HHS.  She has added an additional 20,000 pages of regulations to the 2700 page bill since it was passed.

It will probably take years and lots of personal heartbreak to find out what's in it.

yes...and this. Obamacare wants to kill the elderly, undesirables, and those with expensive maladies (like cancer). A charitable hospital will keep those types alive. The democrats want TOTAL control, having a safe haven to escape to is not part of the socialist plan.
