The Vancouver/Portland weather has recently had historic levels of snow. Conditions have been so bad that most schools and public buildings have been closed for at least a couple of days. Weather this cold and unpredictable will definitely lead to hazardous conditions that send people to the hospital. Hopefully this does not apply to you or anyone you know. However, I thought it was timely to follow-up on a recent post about Washington’s charity care laws. If you or someone you know ends up needing hospital treatment make sure to apply for the hospital’s version of charity care. It is also important to remember that if you have insurance, the charity care deduction can apply to your deductible or co-pay. A 50%, 60%, 80% or possibly 100% reduction of a high deductible is well worth the time to fill out a form.
