The Peterson-Milbank Program for Sustainable Health Care Costs advances state-based efforts to make health care more affordable for residents, employers, and states. The program provides technical assistance through Bailit Health to states that are developing targets for per-capita trends in total health care spending statewide. Further, the program helps participating states analyze and collaboratively address the underlying drivers of cost growth. The participating states are Connecticut, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Washington.  (Click or tap to see a profile of each state’s initiative.)
