Health Care Finance

Maryland’s Health Care Finance system is regulated to ensure Marylanders receive the right care, at the right time, in the right setting.

Uniquely Maryland, Uniquely Successful

Maryland hospitals balance financial sustainability with providing accessible and high-quality health care. Maryland’s unique all-payer rate setting system tracks and monitors the rules on hospital price transparency, consumer cost exposure, payer denials, and hospital global budgets guided by the Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC).

Despite the ongoing complexities of health care finance, Maryland hospitals leverage this Model to enhance patient outcomes, invest in cutting-edge technologies, and pioneer new strategies for financial sustainability. While navigating the financial landscapes with resilience and innovation, Maryland hospitals contribute positively to the overall health and well-being of the communities that surround them.
