Massachusetts Hospital Association (MHA)'s positions on what’s necessary for successful healthcare payment reform in the state are resonating with public opinion leaders and also getting national attention.

Yesterday the Boston Globe ran this editorial calling on the legislature to hold off on specific government intervention in this latest round of payment reform proposals; the Boston Herald ran this opinion piece on April 6, 2012, saying that legislated rate-setting or price regulation of healthcare costs at this point in time would amount to bureaucratic over-reach.

Also, Kaiser Health News asked Gov. Deval Patrick, Massachusetts Hospital Association President & CEO Lynn Nicholas, Massachusetts' Health Care For All's Paul Williams and Massachusetts Medical Society's Lynda Young about their views on what Massachusetts healthcare reform has accomplished so far and how the state might tackle this next wave of policy challenges.
