The Manatt State Cost Containment Update


Welcome to the Manatt State Cost Containment Update, a digital publication produced with generous support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and in collaboration with the Peterson-Milbank Program for Sustainable Health Care Costs. This Manatt series, to be released quarterly through 2022, shares the latest updates on state cost growth benchmarking programs and other data-driven initiatives states are undertaking to contain health care cost growth. In each edition, we also feature a spotlight issue that speaks to how state benchmarking programs are collectively evolving to meet new regulatory or landscape needs. Below are our May updates.
