A study using 2016 data has shown that charity care provided by non-profit hospitals in America equals anywhere from 0.46% to 16.69% of a hospital’s expenses.   These figures reflect uncompensated care and losses from care given to Medicaid-covered patients.  These figures do not include bad debt, or write-offs from patients who do not pay.

Among the Top 20 hospitals, by revenue, the average amount of charity care provided is 5.21% of expenses.   Source:  Modern Healthcare.
