There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Boston Children’s shares with policymakers a commitment to preserving world-class care for the children of Massachusetts while reducing costs, both now and over the long term.
We treat the sickest 90 percent of children in the Commonwealth.
More than 30 percent of our patients are covered by Medicaid—making us the largest health care provider for Massachusetts’ low-income families.
Over the past three years, Boston Children’s has held our expenses to well below medical inflation, taking approximately $170 million out of the health care system.
We have passed the majority of these savings to insurers, thereby lowering costs for employers and families alike.
Wherever possible, we are transitioning care delivery to lower-cost, more accessible settings in our patients’ communities.
We are improving the integration of care between primary care pediatricians and specialists, resulting in smarter utilization of resources and eliminating duplication of services.
Finally, Boston Children’s is committed to advocating for our most vulnerable patients—many of whom are covered by MassHealth, the insurer of one in every five Massachusetts residents. As policymakers call for the health care market to adopt a more cost-conscious approach, the state must keep this sizeable population firmly in mind.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
