Lowering cost and improving the quality of healthcare is imperative for everyone in Maine. Our state has the 4th highest per capita healthcare costs in the country, and our country has the highest per capita healthcare costs in the world. At the same time, patients only receive about half the care that experts recommend.1
How does this affect you?
Purchasers & Payers – High costs and inconsistent quality stagnate growth and lower profits
Providers – High costs deter patient accessibility and stifle quality of care
Consumers – High costs and inconsistent quality contribute to poor health outcomes, reduced wages and increased financial burden
Just as the problem affects us all, it will take a collaborative effort from all corners of Maine’s healthcare market to bring about change. Join the Maine Health Management Coalition to make our state’s healthcare the best it can be. As a member you will:
