The Center of Health Information and Analysis (Center) is required under M.G.L. c. 12C to collect and report on Health Status Adjusted Total Medical Expenses (TME); Relative Prices (RP), including the annual rate of growth of average RP; Alternative Payment Methods (APM); and Provider Payment Methods (PPM). The Center assumed TME and RP responsibilities from the Division of Health Care Finance and Policy on November 5, 2012, when Chapter 224 of the Acts of 2012 (Chapter 224) and M.G.L. c. 12C went into effect. The collection and reporting of APM, PPM, and the annual rate of growth of average RP were new requirements introduced under M.G.L. c. 12C.
Regulation 957 CMR 2.00 governs the methodology and filing requirements for health care payers to calculate and report TME, RP, APM, and PPM data to the Center.
