AHA and Ernst & Young have released the 2012 Schedule H Report, showing that hospitals spend an average of 12.3% of their total expenses on community benefits. The report is based on the most recent data available from over 1,100 tax-exempt hospitals for tax year 2012, and includes benefits such as financial assistance, Medicaid underpayments, community health improvement programs, health research and education, subsidized services, Medicare shortfalls and other community benefits and building activities.
