Hospitals and managed care organizations must biennially report to the Healthcare Advocate whether they administer a “community benefits program;” a “voluntary program to promote preventive care and to improve the health status for working families and populations at risk in the communities within the geographic service areas of a managed care organization or a hospital.” Hospitals and managed care organizations may establish guidelines for their program that focus on principles such as developing the program based on the needs of the targeted population (e.g. low-income, middle income, and medically underserved populations and cultural and linguistic barriers).

Hospitals and managed care organizations that plan to develop a community benefits program must biennially report information to the Healthcare Advocate regarding the program’s design and development status.
