“Indiana hospitals remain committed to addressing health care affordability for Hoosiers. Hospitals have demonstrated this commitment even during the pandemic, with health systems working with insurers and collaborating directly with employers to lower costs for patients and businesses. Indiana’s hospitals have also been recognized for leading the country in transparency. These initiatives have fundamentally changed the way consumers and employers purchase health care and are already proving to be effective.
Indiana hospitals are leaders in efforts to lower costs while improving the state’s health. However, until all sectors across health care are at the table, these efforts will always fall short.
Hospitals will continue to prioritize market solutions as the path to reducing overall health care costs for employers and individuals. We are confident that Indiana is heading in the right direction, and we look forward to partnering with policymakers to ensure progress continues to benefit Hoosiers.”
