11-member Health Policy Commission to begin work Friday

The governor, attorney general, and state auditor announced their picks Wednesday afternoon for a new commission that will set a health care spending goal for the state and track providers’ progress in staying within the target. The 11-member board, made up of people with deep histories in health care policy in Massachusetts and nationally, will play an unprecedented role in the state’s health care market.

“I am confident they will be successful in leading the charge in driving down health care costs,” Governor Deval Patrick said in a press release. “I thank them for their willingness in taking on this important task.”
