Pre-Filed Testimony Overview

By statute, the HPC is required to identify a number of health care providers and payers as witnesses for the annual cost trends hearing. As such, along with the Attorney General’s Office and the Center for Health Information and Analysis, the HPC requests written pre-filed testimony from organizations and calls on individuals to testify in-person at the two-day hearing. The pre-filed and in-person testimony helps to inform various research and policy streams, including the HPC’s annual cost trends report.

Each summer, pre-filed testimony is sent to approximately 50 health care payers, providers, and hospitals. These questions cover a variety of relevant topics, such as alternative payment methodologies, behavioral health integration, and price transparency.

The tables below will be updated periodically as pre-filed testimony submissions are received. If you have any questions regarding pre-filed or in-person testimony, please contact HPC-Testimony@mass.gov.
