The diversity of federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) allow personalized treatment to each individual. From FQHCs, community health centers and medical centers to management services organizations, long-term care facilities and mental health, behavioral health and addiction treatment facilities, Withum understands the mission and purpose of providing quality advisory, tax and audit services to you so you can treat your patients and stay compliant.
FQHCs are not only unique because they are supported by Federal and state financial assistance to provide services to uninsured and under-insured residents, but also because they are subject to specific key program requirements mandated by HRSA. We incorporate the 18-key program requirements in our audit plans.
Our approach is similar to a financial statement auditor approach where not-for-profit and healthcare tax professionals work with our tax-exempt clients on-premises as part of the engagement. From adoption of a formal tax return workplace and timeline and reviewing Form 990 prior to on-site workdays to reviewing written policies and procedures and focusing on high-level tax issues, we understand.
Form 401(k) and 403(b) to pension plans, profit sharing and health and welfare plans, we work extensively with those affected by compliance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to ensure we are up-to-date with the latest changes and updates. This provides a cost-effective approach to help clients maintain a position of strength through timely compliance.
