    We recently contracted with a company to design a healthy living magazine full of articles to help community members manage and prevent disease. Our intention with this magazine is community benefit but it does market some of our services (see back cover). Does anyone know of a calculation to determine how much of this magazine we can count for Community Benefit? If there is no calculation I would love to her your opinion of what you would count! See link below to view the magazine.

    Nickie,
    Having read this delightful publication I would say you could easily count 80% (or slightly more) of your cost to Community Benefits.

    Nickie,
    Great magazine. We have a smaller scale version that I count as community health education. As long as it is promoted into the community at large and not just your patients. There are references in the magazine to further information beyond Summit Health. Make sure the topics tie back to your CHNA.
    From the Schedule H instructions:
    “Community health improvement services” means activities or programs, subsidized by the health care organization, carried out or supported for
    the express purpose of improving community health.
    Activities or programs cannot be reported if they are provided primarily for marketing purposes or if they are more beneficial to the organization than to the community.”
    The back page is purely marketing. I would deduct a percentage of the total costs as a cost of marketing. I would go with a 10% -20% deduction. Over all the magazine does not appear to be primarily intended for marketing purposes.

    Nickie,
    I’m glad you asked that question. Parrish HealthCare also has a publication. It is mailed to more than 20,000 homes and is available on our website. I’m curious as to what percent we could count.

    Jo,
    I would deduct 10-20% as well for this publication. Great information included.
