Massachusetts Aims to Cut Growth of Its Health Costs

Massachusetts Aims to Cut Growth of Its Health Costs

Tuesday, July 31, 2012
The New York Times

The Massachusetts legislature passed a first-in-the-nation bill on Tuesday that seeks to limit the growth of health care costs in the state.  The bill would not allow spending on health care to grow any faster than the state’s economy through 2017. For five years after that, any rise in health care costs would need to be half a percentage point lower than the increase in the state’s gross domestic product.
