    Strange, but true. If a health system provides free autopsies to families who cannot afford it, for various reasons, does that qualify as a community service?

    I would consider it CB because it demonstrates charitable purpose. Do you write off the services to charity care?

    Thanks for your input. Right now it wouldn’t be counted because only people (employee, patient) of Baystate can get this service, but if it was open to all members of the community in could considered a Community Services under the Community Benefits program. There may be some discussion at BMC about opening “enrollment” into the autopsy program.
