    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the Legislative Council to direct the Health Finance Commission to study hospital community benefits plans described in IC 16-21-9.

    Whereas, the Clarian Health Partners Community Benefit Taskforce was chartered in April of 2005 by Dan Evans, Chief Executive Officer, to ensure that Clarian's community benefit plan, measurement and reports follow best practices and set a standard for all other Indiana healthcare providers to emulate; and

    Whereas, as a result of the taskforce, it became clear that overall statewide changes in community benefit plan reporting may be necessary: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate     of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives     concurring:


    
    SECTION 1. That the Legislative Council is urged to direct the Health Finance Commission, established under IC 2-5-23-3 to review issues pertaining to hospital community benefit plans described in IC 16-21-9 including:
    (a) The current makeup of a community benefit plan;
    (b) The current reporting requirements and whether any changes to the reporting requirements are necessary; and
    (c) Anything else that the commission determines necessary.
    SECTION 2. That the Health Finance Commission, if so charged,

shall operate under the direction of the Legislative Council and shall issue a final report when directed to do so by the council.
    SECTION 3. The Secretary of the Senate is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to the Legislative Council.
