Save the Date! HMPRG Hosting a Forum on Non-Profit Hospital Charity Care in Illinois on Friday, November 5, 2010.

Health & Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG)
October 12, 2010
Even with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many Illinoisans will be uninsured or underinsured, making charity care an important component of the health care safety net. 

The new Affordable Care Act requirements for non-profit hospitals and the IL Supreme Court’s Provena decision, make now the right time to set standards for charity care in Illinois.

 The forum will examine the history of charity care in IL, the recent IL Supreme Court decision in the Provena case and possible ways to set a clear standard for charity care in Illinois. 

Speakers include:

  • Dave Buysse, Senior Assistant Attorney General, Office of the Illinois Attorney General
  • Ralph Martire, Executive Director, Center for Tax & Budget Accountability
  • Margie Schaps, Executive Director, Health & Medicine Policy Research Group
  • Additional Speakers TBA

The forum will take place on November 5, 2010 from 8:30am-12:30pm (Location TBD).  To RSVP, please email Janna
