Massachusetts Takes on Next Health Care Experiment

May 1, 2012

Massachusetts, the first state to pass a comprehensive health reform law, is now trying to break new ground in controlling healthcare costs, the Washington Post reports.

Instead of a fee-per-service approach – the norm – providers would be encouraged to accept a flat payment for all the care a patient or group of patients receives.
