The annual health care cost trends hearing is a public examination into the drivers of health care costs as well as the engagement of experts and witnesses to identify particular challenges and opportunities within the Commonwealth's health care system. Chapter 224 transferred the responsibility to conduct the hearing to the Commission, in coordination with the Office of the Attorney General (AGO) and Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA). The hearing occurred on October 6 and 7, 2014 at the Suffolk University Law School. It provides a unique opportunity to evaluate evidence and assess the health care market’s response to the cost growth benchmark and quality, transparency and care delivery innovations required by Chapter 224.
