IRS announces "newly finalized regulations" aimed at challenging the current bill-collecting practices of some nonprofit hospitals.
"The Internal Revenue Service announced newly finalized regulations Monday aimed at cracking down on nonprofit medical centers that levy steep charges on uninsured patients and deploy aggressive tactics to collect payment, The Hill reports. The rules, instituted under the Affordable Care Act, will require tax-exempt hospitals to make payment methods more fair and costs more transparent." -- the Chronicle of Philanthropy
