Nearly every hospital in Massachusetts would be affected by the different health care reform policies currently being debated by Democratic presidential candidates because Medicare almost always pays hospitals less than private health insurance companies, according to a February 25, 2020 WBUR article.

Meredith Rosenthal, C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics and Policy at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, told WBUR that any health reform would lead to “a redistribution of payments” and that “some hospitals would be winners and others would be losers.”
