M.D. Anderson submits its records on charitable care
Sen. Charles Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is pressuring the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center to account for its charitable-care practices as part of his ongoing crackdown on tax-exempt hospitals. Responding to pointed questions about everything from the hospital's relationships with insurance companies to bill-collection policies to fundraising activity, M.D. Anderson officials this week delivered four bound volumes of data to Grassley. The Iowa senator has been investigating tax-exempt organizations, including hospitals he says don't provide public benefits equal to the subsidies they receive.
