California nonprofit and for-profit hospitals give away roughly the same amount of healthcare in their charity care, a new report shows.

"A new report on California uncompensated care has found there's very little difference between what for-profit and nonprofit healthcare providers are giving away in care, despite the expectation that nonprofits should be more charitable than their for-profit competitors.

"In a study published in Health Affairs, Renee Hsia, MD, an emergency physician, and fellow researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, combed through utilization and financial data on California nonprofit and for-profit hospitals between 2011 and 2013, to compare their rates of charity and uncompensated care."--Anthony Brino, Healthcare Finance
