Although U.S. hospitals reportedly provide hospitals with billions of dollars worth of health care, many Americans seem to be getting the short end of the stick.
In a crucial debate that has been going regarding nonprofit hospitals and their tax-exempt status, Michigan and the nation seem to be going head to head on the issue of health care.
When Vivian Glenn from Detroit, received $5,000 worth of bills from the Detroit Receiving and Harper University hospitals, she didn't have the money to pay them.
Glenn is a 21-year-old single mother caring for her daughter who is living with cerebral palsy.
The bills sent to Glenn made no mention of any free care that was available to low-income people in her circumstance.
Activists around the country are reportedly questioning whether or not the health systems provide the level of charity care they should to be deserving $12.6 billion in tax exemptions annually.
Hospitals claim that the exemptions allow them to fill the need in the health system as employers decrease or stop health benefits.
According to reports, the IRS demands little detail about the charity care provided in hospitals for people like Glenn in their annual reviews.
They have also been accused of never revoking a hospital's nonprofit status for failing to provide free care.
