High Deductible Plans, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly –

The Maine Health Management Coalition (MHMC) is a non-profit organization whose over 60 members include public and private purchasers, hospitals, health plans, and doctors working together to measure and report healthcare value. MHMC helps employers and their employees use this information to make informed decisions.

Since 1993, MHMC has played a leading role in healthcare quality measurement and public reporting both in Maine and nationally, and has acted as a catalyst for quality improvement.  Quality rankings for hospitals and primary care clinicians are available at www.getbettermaine.org.

MHMC provides value to its members by fostering safer, higher quality, and more efficient healthcare delivered to employees and dependents.

MHMC brings the purchaser and provider communities together in a partnership to measure and report on the value of healthcare services.  This will inform employer and employee decisions and facilitate the use of performance information by employers and employees to make decisions.

Members consider their company’s active involvement a long-term investment strategy, by investing in not only their employees’ health, but also by considering healthcare as a strategic aspect of business management.

More than 200,000 member employees and dependents along with all Maine’s citizens benefit from the MHMC’s work by receiving quality care from Maine clinicians and hospitals, and learning how to be activated healthcare consumers and patients.
