Henderson Calls For More Health Costs Transparency

Democratic candidate for governor Jared Henderson Tuesday released his plan for controlling health care costs that included setting a statewide cost growth goal and creating a health commission that would collect data on health care expenditures.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s campaign criticized the plan for lacking specifics.

Henderson’s campaign said the state health commission’s job would be to hold insurers and hospitals accountable for providing care affordably. He said in an interview that an independent body would set the statewide cost goal with input from stakeholders.     MORE
