  • CHIA's Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey provides information on health insurance coverage, health care access and use, and health care affordability in Massachusetts.

    Watch our short video to learn more about the survey and CHIA's latest findings.

  • The majority of Massachusetts residents get health insurance through their own or a family member’s employer.

    CHIA's Massachusetts Employer Survey gives insight into the employer health insurance market, including offerings, cost-sharing, and plan characteristics.

  • CHIA's hospital and health system financial performance provides information on the profitability, liquidity, and solvency for hospitals and health systems in Massachusetts.

    Currently, acute hospitals are grouped into cohorts of Academic Medical Centers (AMCs), Teaching hospitals, Community hospitals, and Community-High Public Payer Hospitals (HPP).

In order to give insight into COVID-19's impact on the Massachusetts health care system, CHIA has begun implementing two new additional health care information and analysis initiatives.

CHIA's new monthly hospital and health system financial performance reporting offers current acute care hospital financial metrics including total margins, operating revenue and expenses, and the impact of federal COVID-19 Relief Funds. Additionally, CHIA’s new monthly enrollment summaries measure the impact of the pandemic on insurance coverage in the Commonwealth including private commercial plans, MassHealth, and Medicare.
