Payment Reform Made Meme
Payment reform — healthcare cost control legislation — is now not just an idea, but it is the LAW in Massachusetts. Thank you to all the fans of this tumblr and thanks to the supporters out there sharing this silliness and submitting your suggestions! I sure had fun! 
And thanks to all the hard work — by the Governor, legislators, their staffs, advocates, stakeholders and, of course, the consumers who participated in this process. 
I may post here on occasion - but I think that’s pretty much a wrap! Onward to implementation!

Well, it’s finally here - the final days of the legislative session. What better symbol of the slow and steady pace towards payment reform in MA is there than Senator Richard Moore on a camel? Thanks mapoliwithanimals!
(Not sure if this qualifies as a meme, but we’ll allow it!)
