Testimony - 2016 Cost Trends Hearing

Overview

Oral Testimony - Delivered at 2016 Health Care Cost Trends Hearing

Pre-Filed Testimony

Under Chapter 224, the HPC is required to identify a number of health care providers and payers as witnesses for the Cost Trends Hearing. As such, the HPC requests written pre-filed testimony from nearly 70 organizations and calls on over 30 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 fifty health care payers, providers and hospitals. This testimony generally consists of approximately ten questions on a variety of relevant topics, such as alternative payment methodologies, behavioral health integration, and price transparency.
