As health care costs rise, state revenues decline, and individuals and families face increasing economic uncertainty, state leaders are interested in developing cost-growth benchmarks to cap how quickly total health care expenditures can rise to better align health costs with the state’s overall economic growth.
This webinar, convened in partnership with the Milbank Memorial Fund for state officials only, will explore the strategies and experiences of states that are implementing cost-growth benchmark policies. Speakers will include national experts who have analyzed states’ growth caps, as well as state officials implementing the strategy.
