(This amendment provides funding for the implementation of House Bill 1071, which requires every hospital in the Commonwealth to screen patients for financial assistance that may be available to help with the cost of care. It also prohibits hospitals from hospital engaging in extraordinary collection actions to recover a debt for medical services against any patient until such hospital has performed such screening.)
