HPC Board Meetings

The next Board meeting will be at 12:00 PM Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 50 Milk Street

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. A full public meeting schedule can be found here.

List of Public Testimony

For the first time under the framework set forth in Chapter 224, the HPC Board may modify the annual health care cost growth benchmark established in statute for calendar year 2018. As required by state law, the HPC will set the 2018 benchmark equal to potential gross state product minus 0.5 percent, or 3.1%, unless the HPC determines that an adjustment to the benchmark is reasonably warranted.
