The nonprofit healthcare landscape was changed significantly by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which imposes new requirements on nonprofit hospitals that must be followed in order to keep 501(c)(3) status. These requirements are already in effect now and must be implemented even though the IRS has not yet issued regulations. The new rules also mandate tax-exempt hospitals to administer community health needs assessments and to clarify and make known their financial assistance policies. Failure to do so may result to costly penalties which can be as high as $50,000. Also, the PPACA creates a new concept called Accountable Care Organizations (ACO). IRS is in the process of issuing guidance in both of these areas. This comes at the heels of increased scrutiny by IRS and state taxing authorities, which are now sharing information about tax exempt organizations.
