The Provocateur: The Untold Stories of Non Profit Hospitals: "That film tracks Albany, Georgia surgeon Dr. John Bagnato and his accountant, Charles Rehberg. Starting in 2003, the two examined the tax returns of more than a hundred non profits all over the country and they were startled to find that most non profits were abusing their non profit status. They found a pattern of exorbitant health care costs, strict enforcement of collections against patients that lacked an ability to pay, massive expansions, all while executives received healthy salaries and these hospitals spent tens of millions on lobbying."
