The focus on healthcare cost containment has grown dramatically since Massachusetts enacted the first cost benchmarking program in 2012. Since the program’s inception, commercial spending growth in Massachusetts has dropped below national rates, generating potentially billions of dollars in avoided spending.
On Thursday December 5, Manatt Health released a new white paper prepared for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, “Implementing a Statewide Healthcare Cost Benchmark: How Oregon and Other States Can Build on the Massachusetts Model,” Manatt Health investigates the benchmarking programs adopted in Massachusetts and Oregon.
On January 15, a Manatt Health Webinar will present findings from the report. More information and registration details can be found here.
