Charity care check ups available

September 28, 2023

Charity care laws and rules are complex, evolve regularly, impact multiple hospital departments and are active areas of enforcement by the state. WHS and WSHA have partnered to offer a new Charity Care Checkup program. These are a comprehensive review of your hospital’s compliance with both state charity care rules and, if they apply, the federal rules under 501R for nonprofit organizations. Each checkup includes a review of policies, training, materials and websites. We will also interview your staff to ask how they are handling common issues and implementing their training. A complete description of services is included in this brochure.

For more information on this program, including the fee WHS charges for this service, and to schedule your own Charity Care Checkup, please contact Ed Phippen at or by phone at (206) 216-2556.  (Ed Phippen)
