Today, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a letter, which asked IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for updates on implementing tax-exempt hospital accountability measures, citing two instances of non-profit hospitals in the news for aggressively suing patients. In the letter, Senator Grassley wrote: “[W]e can both agree that many charitable hospitals perform good work on behalf of the communities that they service. However, some charitable hospitals get as close to the line as possible, while others callously breach it. It is important that Congress, via its oversite role, and the IRS ensure that charitable hospitals are functioning as intended.”
