Filing Your Community Benefits Report
The Illinois Community Benefits Act requires non-profit hospitals to file reports with the Illinois Attorney General annually. Public hospitals, rural hospitals outside a Metropolitan Statistical Area and small hospitals of 100 beds or less are exempt from filing.
See the state's instructions on filling out your report and the state's report form. Your annual report must include:
- Mission statement;
- Community benefit plan (community healthcare needs are considered);
- Amount and types of community benefits provided (report on 2-page form);
- Charity policy; and
- Audited financial statements.
You annual report should be filed within six months of the close of your hospital's fiscal year. Send your completed report to:
