Massachusetts Commercial Medical Care Spending: Findings from the All-Payer Claims Database is a joint publication of CHIA and the Health Policy Commission (HPC). This report examines trends in commercial medical spending including overall spending trends and spending by category of service, type of episode, and region using data from the All-Payer Claims Database (APCD).
The data used in this chartbook publication is derived from medical claims-based payments submitted to the APCD for Massachusetts residents insured by the state’s three largest commercial payers in calendar years 2010, 2011, and 2012. The databook provides this data, along with additional results from this analysis.
These materials enhance our understanding of the Massachusetts health care market and demonstrate our commitment to transparency and ongoing collaboration with other state agencies.
