Study: Nonprofit hospitals not doing enough to justify tax-exempt status

Lawmakers in Sacramento are considering new regulations on California’s hospitals after a series of reports released last month that found private, nonprofit, tax-exempt hospitals might be falling well below their charity care expectations.

Nonprofit hospitals are making minimal provision of charity care to medically or financially indigent people, and often provide lower levels of charity care than non-tax exempt, for-profit hospitals in the state, according to the reports.
