The tax proposal was introduced Thursday morning as an amendment, and caught both legislators and lobbyists by surprise. There was no testimony taken on the tax proposal. But the bill containing the provision passed 8 4 and heads to the full House.
Even if the money could be redirected to the state, no one knows how much it would be. Hospital property isn't assessed, but rather reported voluntarily every five years, Magstadt said. She said it would likely involve millions of dollars.
But attached to the health proposal is a tax idea that Rep. Melissa Magstadt said would help pay for it.
Munsterman, the prime sponsor of the measure, said if the state can only help a certain number of people, those who are working but still unable to get health insurance is a good place to start.
same amount of charity care as the tax exempt nonprofits.
If South Dakota expanded Medicaid, the federal government would cover 90 percent or more of the cost of covering low income individuals with the federal health program. A partial expansion for just people earning below 100 percent of the poverty line would have a total state and federal cost of around $150 million per year. The state share 10 percent share, starting in 2020, would be just under $20 million per year.
Participants in the program would have to pay $25 a month for their coverage. The state would subsidize the rest of the cost of buying a "silver" level health insurance plan on the federal exchange. Participants would pay any extra costs if they Converse White Leather Low smoke or wanted a better health plan.
Hospital chains already pay property taxes on some of their property. For example, a hospital building might be exempt, but the clinic next door might be taxed.

If the measure required people to work 30 hours per week to qualify, it would cover an estimated 6,903 South Dakotans for $24 million per year. At 20 hours per week, it would cover 8,012 Converse High Tops Sale Uk
Sutton didn't know what percent of Avera's property is subject to taxes.
An earlier version of the legislation set the limit at 30 hours of work per week, but a revision backed by Munsterman raised that to 40 hours. He did that to lower the cost of the program.
significant strings attached. To receive health care coverage, individuals would have to not be eligible for Medicaid, Medicare, or the Indian Health Service, and would have to work 40 hours per week.
Subsidizing insurance would cost an average of $3,480 per year per person, or around $14 million for just under 4,000 eligibles.
Magstadt said hospitals were given tax exemptions to offset the costs they incur covering people who can't pay, but cited a study saying that for profit hospitals cover the Converse Trainers High Tops
A number of Republican lawmakers have limiting extra state health coverage to people who have jobs.
"The problem with the amendment is it doesn't link up the dollars to the state," Lust said.
Avera Health as a company pays around $3.3 million in property taxes, said Bob Sutton, Avera's vice president of community relations.
"This is a strategy we could use to actually help those folks, well defined, that are working 40 hours a week, and how we could begin to take care of them today," said Munsterman.

But unlike Medicaid expansion, this state provided health care would have had Converse Fashion Girl
Rep. Scott Munsterman, R Brookings, pitched the measure as an alternative to Medicaid expansion. It would apply to people earning less than 100 percent of the federal poverty line $11,670 for an individual or $23,850 for a family of four. That's the population that would be eligible for Medicaid but can't get subsidized insurance on the Affordable Care Act's health care exchanges. Gov. Dennis Daugaard has asked the federal government for a waiver to expand Medicaid just for the population earning less than the poverty line, but has not yet heard back.
Lust said Magstadt's amendment wouldn't actually bring the state any money as it's currently worded, since property taxes flow to schools and local governments.
It's unclear how much money removing the tax exemption on hospitals would bring in.
Munsterman said 1,803 of those 3,978 are Native Americans who aren't eligible for IHS. The other 22,000 are either Native Americans eligible for IHS, or don't work 40 hours per week. They wouldn't get coverage under the measure unless their circumstances changed such as if they started working enough hours to qualify.
"I think there should be a work requirement," said Rep. David Lust, R Rapid City, the House Majority leader. "How strict (it) should be, I haven't given enough thought to the nuances of that."
"I wanted to try to keep this bill under $15 million, which 40 hours does," Munsterman said.
Limiting aid to uninsured people who work at least 40 hours per week amounts to an estimated 3,978 South Dakotans, out of around 26,000 who are uninsured and earn less than the federal poverty line.
She proposed removing the property tax exemption for health care facilities with 50 or more beds.
