The following program content was provided by the speaker.


Last December, Congress rewrote the federal tax code last December for the first time in 31 years with sweeping changes that affect charitable and investor-owned hospitals. This webinar will explore these changes, analyze the financial and operational impact these changes have for the health care industry, and evaluate strategies for minimizing the burdens and maximizing the opportunities that tax reform creates.


At the completion of this program, participants will be able to accomplish the following.

  • identify how the Tax Reform Act affects compensation paid by charitable hospitals to their executives, potentially resulting in additional federal or state scrutiny of their activities
  • understand the ways in which the Tax Reform Act modifies financing opportunities for charitable and investor-owned hospitals
  • consider why the repeal of the individual mandate may result in increased demand for financial assistance
  • discuss how the lower corporate income tax rate positively affects investor-owned hospitals and how it also may benefit charitable hospitals with unrelated business activities
  • explain the modifications to the unrelated business income tax for charitable hospitals
  • analyze how tax reform affects charitable and investor-owned hospitals as employers
