The Chamber has a unique perspective on health care policy because our members span the industry spectrum.

At our table we have providers, insurers, researchers, and pharmaceutical and life science companies. Our health care policy work incorporates all these viewpoints.

At the Chamber, we also look at the health care industry’s role in our region’s economy and employers. Nearly one-in-five workers in Massachusetts are employed directly in the health care sector. Tens of thousands more are indirectly employed in jobs that provide legal, financial, technological, administrative, and other support.

Life-changing and life-saving breakthroughs happen in Boston. We incubate innovations because of our strong health care ecosystem. At the same time, health care costs are a factor for employers when making decisions about hiring and growth. 

Any approach to health care policy in Massachusetts must strike a balance. It needs to maintain the world class quality we’re known for, recognize the value the industry adds to our state’s economy and quality of life, and consider how changes can impact employers.
