Hospital Community Benefits Plans

State law, created by SB 697 (Torres, 1994), requires all private, non-profit hospitals to “assume a social obligation to provide community benefits in the public interest” in exchange for their tax-exempt status.  To do this, these hospitals are required to:

  • Conduct a community needs assessment every three years
  • Develop a community benefit plan in consultation with the community
  • Annually submit a copy of its plan to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD)

Click here for a listing of hospitals required to submit a community benefits plan. Please note that this state requirement does not apply to government-owned and rural hospitals and is independent of a similar requirement in the federal Affordable Care Act.

In its 1998 Senate Bill 697 Report to the Legislature, OSHPD reported on the first round of hospital community benefit reporting, and presented recommendations for future community benefit planning and reporting. Overall, OSHPD found that the legislation encouraged hospitals to work collaboratively with community partners, and provided a conducive framework for meaningful contributions by not-for-profit hospitals.

OSHPD is the equivalent of the "public library" for private, non-profit hospitals' community benefit plans. The following units within OSHPD are involved in handling the plans and related issues:

  • Healthcare Information Division / Accounting and Reporting Systems Section
    Receives the plans and conducts policy analysis on reporting issues. A draft  Planners Guide is available to assist hospital staff in developing a community benefit plan.
  • Healthcare Information Division / Healthcare Information Resource Center (HIRC)
    Handles public requests for copies of the community benefit plans.
  • Healthcare Workforce Development Division
    Responsible for working with the Healthcare Information Division in synthesizing information made available through the community needs assessment process and distributing it to local entities in their community capacity building efforts.
