If "Yes" to line 5b, as a result of budget considerations, was the organization unable to provide free or discounted care to a patient who was eligible for free or discounted care? (Part I, line 5c)

This question and its instructions would benefit from further improvement, including allowing hospitals that answer "no" to question 5b to answer "no" to this question too.

DISCUSSION:
If a hospital is required to answer this question, please note that the IRS instructions say that a "yes" answer is required if financial assistance was denied solely because the charity care budget was exceeded.

NARRATIVE REQUIRED: No
