Heath Care Costs

Read the latest about effort to manage health care costs, and MMS advocacy to ensure that cost-control efforts protect patients' access to care and promote high-quality, high performance health care.

Overview and Background


MMS Stance

  • Cost efficiency is a critical health care issue, not only for economic reasons, but because patients forego necessary care when it is not affordable.
  • Physicians are committed to participating in efforts to identify areas where health care can be made more efficient.
  • Quick fox solutions must be avoided, because such efforts invariably have unintended consequences, and frequently cause more damage than the problem it is trying to solve.
