Office of Health Care Affordability Cost & Market Impact Review Process — Participant Information

Program originally recorded January 8, 2024.

The Office of Health Care Affordability (OHCA), established in 2022, will profoundly shape health care in California. Its legislative goals are to slow health care spending growth, promote high-value system performance, and assess market consolidation. 

To shed light on the impacts of mergers and acquisitions in the health care space, OHCA will conduct prospective cost and market impact reviews (CMIR) on market transactions that meet designated materiality thresholds. These reviews will consider changes in size or market share, prices relative to other providers, and other factors in the public interest, including the benefits of the proposed transaction.

This webinar will review the:

  • CMIR process and timeline
  • Circumstances requiring filing
  • Information that must be provided to OHCA
  • Criteria considered in the CMIR process

Hear directly from Office of Health Care Affordability leaders on how this review process will impact your hospital.
