Without legislative action to bring Indiana’s hospital prices in line with the national average during the current session of the Indiana General Assembly, Indiana working families and their employers face billions of dollars in avoidable costs.
This analysis by the Employers’ Forum of Indiana shows that Indiana workers and employers paid more than $2 billion more on employee hospital care in 2020 than they would have if Indiana’s market had hospital prices at the national average. Of the $2 billion potential savings, $1.6 billion would have come from thirty hospitals that are owned by five non-profit health systems.
