Maryland’s Proposal to Modernize All Payer Rate Setting: Enhancing Patient Experience, Controlling Costs, and Improving Health

March 29, 2013

Health care in the United States is facing critical challenges in access to care, cost, and outcomes. To address these challenges, Maryland has recently submitted an initial
proposal to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services that to build on the strengths of our health care system and modernize our unique approach to all-payer hospital rate- setting.

This proposal will complement other critical efforts underway to strengthen primary care and community health, enhance the sharing of medical information, and expand access to care through the Maryland Health Connection.

In our testimony today, we will outline the key elements of Maryland’s proposal and discuss the next steps in the process towards adoption.
