In exchange for providing support to the communities they serve, nonprofit hospitals get federal benefits. However, despite billions in tax breaks, the amount of charity care provided by these hospitals pales in comparison to the benefits they receive. Today on All Sides, we’ll discuss the issue of charity care and how people can find it without going bankrupt.

Guests:

  • Melanie Evans, Health Reporter, Wall Street Journal
  • Ge Bai, Professor of Accounting, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
  • Jared Walker, Founder, Dollar For
  • Jason Koma, Executive Director, Charitable Health Network
