MHA Featured in MiBiz Story on RAND Corp. study

Posted on October 19, 2020

MiBiz published a story Oct. 11 reviewing a study on U.S. hospital pricing from the RAND Corp. and the Employers’ Forum of Indiana that ranks Michigan second-lowest in the nation for what employers and insurance carriers paid hospitals for care compared to payments hospitals received from Medicare from 2016 to 2018.

The report was published Sept. 2020. A statement from MHA CEO Brian Peters was included in the story, as well as statements from the American Hospital Association, Spectrum Health and Metro Health.

“COVID-19 has shown that the same efficiencies that save employers and patients on costs can make crises even more difficult to navigate,” said Peters. “Overall, the RAND study shows that health care pricing is a delicate and difficult balancing act. Our member hospitals and health systems will continue to provide the highest quality care possible to every person who walks through their doors, and will continue to be good stewards of the dollars they receive, regardless of who is paying the bill.”
