This paper challenges the finding that religious providers are intrinsically motivated to serve (poor) patients, and that extrinsic incentives may crowd-out such motivation.  It finds that PBF improved allocative efficiency by 27%, indicating that although Faith-based healthcare providers may be intrinsically motivated, they still respond positively to extrinsic incentives.
