Abstract

Mark Schlesinger and Brad Gray have summarized research comparing nonprofit and for-profit health care in a remarkably useful form. Their paper effectively demonstrates how nonprofit and for-profit health care organizations in exchange for tax exemption, like many current proposals requiring nonprofit hospitals to provide free care for indigent patients, risks undermining the purpose of the nonprofit organizations and the care they provide. These tradeoffs are significant yet have not been acknowledged in policy debate.
