Abstract

The Georgia State Health Planning Agency provided financial information for 144 general hospitals for the year 1992. Not-for-profit hospitals do not appear to fund charity care to a greater degree than for-profit hospitals. Uninsured patients in Georgia do not appear to use emergency department services instead of a primary care physician. Patient behavior may be influenced by the fact that many public health departments offer free primary care.
