If "Yes," is it a written policy? (Part I, line 1b)

DISCUSSION: Hospitals are expected to have a written policy. You can check "yes" for this question if you have written procedures to provide free or discounted care to patients with financial need, even if those written procedures are called something other than a "charity care policy."

It is suggested that you have a separate, clearly indicated written policy for charity care.
