• Board Meetings

    Meetings of the HPC's 11-member Board are held approximately every six weeks throughout the year. At these public meetings, HPC staff presents Board members with a high-level overview of major workstreams at the HPC. These meetings often feature interagency partners or guest lecturers relevant to health care cost containment and reform. Major reports, statutory regulations, and publications are authorized by a majority vote at these meetings.
