Public Policy Forum: Controlling Hospital and Health Care Costs in Maryland in the Era of Budget Caps

Friday, December 5, 2014
8:30 - 11:00 pm
Columbus Center, 701 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21202

Maryland runs the only all payer hospital payment system in the country. Under this system, the federal government allows a statewide commission, the Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) to regulate hospital prices. Effective January 1, 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved a new, innovative all payer model for hospitals in Maryland. The goal of the all-payer model is to open up new avenues for innovation and increase efficiency in care provided by hospitals.

The purpose of this forum is to examine how hospitals and health care providers in Maryland are adapting to the new model, and the likely effect on the populations that hospitals serve.
