Council on Financial Policy

This council consists of hospital senior executives, and focuses chiefly on helping hospitals and the state succeed under Maryland’s unique agreement with the federal government that regulates hospital rates. The council helps create the vision and structure for implementation of Maryland's hospital payment system, and promotes support for these changes. Through the ongoing evaluation of all aspects of the payment system, the council works to secure the financial resources needed to help hospital s take care of people and make communities healthier.
