Addressing Health Care Market Consolidation and High Prices. Urban Institute. Robert A. Berenson et al. January 13, 2020
In this report, the authors explore a wide range of policy options that attempt to introduce needed competition in provider markets and regulate prices directly. They argue that transparency initiatives will support both regulatory and competition-based policy options, and certain approaches to regulation complement and support efforts to improve market competition. Thus, although they largely divide the report in to two parts, competition and regulation, states do not have to select one course or the other but can take action in both areas.
