The HSCRC has been granted independent salary setting authority legislatively in recognition of the agency’s value to the Maryland Health Care System in achieving the goals of: cost containment; access to care; equity in health care financing; accountability; financial stability; and improved quality of care.
In granting this authority, the legislature also recognized the agency’s need for personnel with specialized expertise and experience in the areas of health care payment systems and policy development sufficient to achieve these goals.
The legislation authorizes the HSCRC, “in consultation with the Secretary of DHMH,” to establish the pay levels for professional positions grade level 17 and above. See Health-General Article, § 19-206(d).
The HSCRC is the agency charged with regulating the rates and revenues of Maryland’s 46 acute care and five specialty hospitals, an industry with revenues in excess of $13 billion per annum.
