(P.A. 94-9, S. 21, 41; P.A. 95-257, S. 12, 21, 39, 58; P.A. 97-2, S. 2, 8; P.A. 99-173, S. 31, 65; P.A. 00-174, S. 68, 83; P.A. 10-179, S. 95; P.A. 11-6, S. 145; 11-44, S. 102.)

History: P.A. 94-9 effective April 1, 1994; P.A. 95-257 replaced Commissioner and Department of Public Health and Addiction Services with Commissioner and Department of Public Health and replaced Commission on Hospitals and Health Care with Office of Health Care Access, effective July 1, 1995; P.A. 97-2 amended definition of hospital in Subdiv. (1) to exclude children’s general hospitals, effective the later of October 1, 1997, or upon the date of federal approval or federal determination that no approval is required pursuant to Sec. 19a-670a (actual effective date was October 1, 1997); P.A. 99-173 amended Subdiv. (1) to exclude short-term acute care hospitals run by the state, effective June 23, 1999, and applicable to calendar quarters commencing on or after July 1, 1999; P.A. 00-174 added Subdiv. (8) defining “patient care services”, effective May 26, 2000, and applicable to all tax periods open on said date; P.A. 10-179 amended Subdivs. (4) and (5) by replacing “Office of Health Care Access” with “Office of Health Care Access division of the Department of Public Health”; P.A. 11-6 deleted former Subdivs. (2) to (8) and added definitions of “net patient revenue”, “commissioner” and “department” in new Subdivs. (2) to (4), respectively, effective July 1, 2011, and applicable to calendar quarters commencing on or after that date; P.A. 11-44 amended Subdiv. (2) by redefining “net patient revenue”, effective July 1, 2011, and applicable to calendar quarters commencing on or after that date.

P.A. 00-174, enacted after plaintiff’s appeal was filed, clarified former Subdiv. (2) to provide that term “patient care services” included tangible personal property transferred in connection with rendering of such services; legislative history indicated that relevant provisions of act were intended to be clarifying and nonsubstantive, therefore court affirmed applicability of such clarification to pending case determining that tax on hospital’s gross earnings applied to charges for tangible personal property used in the course of providing patient care services. 265 C. 511.
