Community Benefit Insight FAQs

What are the data sources for CBI? 

The primary data source for the Community Benefit Insight tool is IRS Form 990. Additional data sources are used to confirm nonprofit hospital status and provide contextual information about each hospital. 

Additional sources include: Schedule H, CMS Cost Report, CMS Providers of Service, Kaiser Family Foundation, and Hilltop Institute.
What is the CBI data release schedule? 

The majority of IRS Form 990 returns from tax exempt organizations which operate hospitals are available 16 months after the end of the organization’s tax period. However, these organizations can select their own tax reporting period. For example, a 2016 tax reporting year may start late in calendar year 2016 and extend well into calendar year 2017. Therefore, the availibity of returns can vary significantly across all organizations.
