AN ACT CONCERNING VARIOUS REVISIONS TO THE OFFICE OF HEALTH CARE ACCESS STATUTES.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

There is no fiscal impact to the Department of Public Health's (DPH's) Office of Health Care Access (OHCA) associated with requiring nonprofit hospitals to provide OHCA with their most recent Internal Revenue Service form 990, a community health needs assessment and a “detailed” patient bill. Furthermore, there is no fiscal impact anticipated from the elimination of a prohibition under CGS Sec. 19a-653 that restricted OHCA from imposing a civil penalty on any health care facility or provider that failed to complete an inventory questionnaire. It is not anticipated that OHCA will ultimately impose such penalties. To date, no civil penalty permitted by CGS Sec. 19a-653 has been assessed by OHCA.
