In the past decade, St. Louis hospitals have become less charitable towards people who are poor and without any insurance. According to the hospitals, this is due to the rising costs and the increasing number of people who are uninsured. As this report finds, although the percentage of people without insurance has gone down only by 13 percent, the percent of charity care has gone down by 46 percent.
