340B Hospital Community Benefit Analysis

In 2015 Alone, 340B Tax-exempt Hospitals Provided Over $50 Billion in Total Benefits to Their Communities

Improving the health of their communities is at the heart of every hospital’s mission, regardless of their form of ownership.

For example, every year, tax-exempt hospitals demonstrate accountability to the communities they serve by filing a report on the benefits they provide to their community using the IRS Form 990 Schedule H and making it publicly available. In 2015 alone, the most recent year for which data is available, those tax-exempt hospitals participating in the 340B drug savings program provided $51.7B in total benefits to their communities.
