On February 7, the KHC hosted a special one-hour discussion with Marilyn Bartlett, Montana Commissioner of Insurance. Bartlett spent two years running Montana’s employee health plan, where she made better deals with hospitals and drug benefits managers and saved the plan from bankruptcy.
Bartlett shared Montana’s journey to save $15.6 million in 2018 over the estimate of what it would have paid without the change.
While her presentation and discussion with KHC employer members was not recorded, you can see her slides from the event here. In addition, detailed stories about her impressive work have been featured in Washington Post, ProPublica, Kaiser Health News, NPR, Full Measure, and more.
