In this New Times investigation, reporter Tony Ortega went undercover in east L.A. posing as a poor man in need of medical attention to find out if Community Health Foundation, a nonprofit health care provider for low-income people in L.A., was forcing its patients to pay and cutting loose those who couldn't.
