Grassley would add hospital scrutiny to stimulus bill

Wall Street Journal Health Blog, February 9, 2009
Sen. Chuck Grassley has been eyeing nonprofit hospitals for years, and now he wants to fold some of his ideas for scrutiny in the big stimulus bill grinding its way through Congress. One Grassley-sponsored amendment would require the Treasury department to compare the amount of uncompensated care and executive compensation provided at nonprofit versus for-profit hospitals. A second amendment calls for government officials to create "uniform definitions of charity care and uncompensated care."
