Health reform legislation will greatly reduce the number of uninsured. Though it’s difficult to predict how that might affect nonprofits’ bottom lines, with states and the feds hungry for revenue, nonprofits’ tax exemptions will certainly face future scrutiny.

On behalf of UNC Health Care, I'd like to clarify some information. The article, as written, appears to imply that UNC Health Care recently purchased Rex Healthcare. In fact, UNC Health Care purchased Rex more than 10 years ago. Since then, UNC and Rex have built an important partnership that allows the two institutions to fulfill UNC Health Care's missions of providing excellent care to North Carolinians across the state, regardless of their ability to pay, conducting cutting-edge research and training the next generation of North Carolina's physicians. Also, to be clear, Rex is not a state institution and has never received any state taxpayer funding. Jennifer James, News Director, UNC Health Care
