Montana Association of Counties Moves To Reference Based Pricing

Why The Move to a Medicare Reference Based Pricing program?

The cost of medical services continue to rise at a rate far faster than inflation of other goods/services and faster than employees’ pay. Reference based pricing is the most effective tool we have to bend that cost curve. This change will mean less money going to health care expenses and more going into employees’ pockets. It also creates a system that is more fair, transparent, comparable and predictable than how hospitals charge us now.
