Correction to 2013 Instructions for Schedule H (Form 990) -- 23-JAN-2014

If you downloaded the Instructions for Schedule H (Form 990), Hospitals (2013) before January 17, 2014, please note the following.

On page 9, under the instructions for Line 19, we removed the following sentences:

The hospital facility may check “Yes” if it had a written policy that required compliance with Subchapter G of Chapter IV of Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the subchapter regarding the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ standards and certification and including the regulations under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) and that prohibits debt collection activities from occurring in the emergency department or in other hospital venues where such activities could interfere with the treatment of emergency medical conditions without discrimination.

We then added the following sentence:

The hospital facility may check “Yes” if it had a written policy that required compliance with 42 U.S.C. 1395dd (Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA)).

The corrected version of Instructions for Schedule H (Form 990), Hospitals is available for download.
