Massachusetts H.B. 4639
In the summer of 2018, the state of Massachusetts was looking for ways to support struggling community health services, and with little warning urgent care centers gross charges were in the crosshairs. The Massachusetts House of Representatives proposed an 8.75% tax on commercially billed urgent care center charges. H.B. 4639 would have been financially devastating to the Massachusetts urgent care industry!
Thanks to quick action from UCA and the North East Regional Urgent Care Association (NERUCA), a UCA Chapter, the legislation was defeated. Had this legislation passed, it would have set a troubling national precedent of taxing urgent care and retail centers around the country. However, this is just one of many pieces of legislation introduced by lawmakers that could upend the urgent care industry.
