New Limits to be Imposed on Hospital Billing Practices

I think it’s safe to say that I’m still working on juggling motherhood, client work, and extras like blogging, so I look forward to picking back up with new posts soon!

In the meantime, I’m sharing this link to a New York Times article that I saw the other day in an elder attorneys newsletter.

According to the article, the Treasury Department and the IRS are issuing new rules for hospitals who want tax-exempt status (about 60% of hospitals throughout the country), which intends to limit hospitals’ use of aggressive tactics to collect payments from low-income payments, presumably those without the means to pay.

Happy reading!
