Continuing our current coverage of health policy issues and trends, Mintz Levin's Health Law Practice and ML Strategies have issued a joint Alert regarding the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission’s Annual Cost Trends Hearings. The hearings, which took place on October 17 and 18, provided an opportunity for a wide-ranging discussion of the Commonwealth’s health care system and its rising costs. The Alert highlights the topics covered over the course of the hearing, and summarizes the points made by the academic, industry, and political leaders who participated. Many of these topics, including pharmaceutical spending, behavioral health, and alternative payment models, are at the core of emerging health policy discussions across the country.
