Hidden Handshakes

According to a recent Boston Globe investigative team article: the CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts agreed to give the CEO of Partners Healthcare (Mass General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital) the "biggest insurance payment" since the formation of Partners Healthcare in 1993. In return, Parners Healthcare would push for increases with other insurers while providing the best deal for Blue Cross Blue Shield. The cost increases are then passed along to employers in the form of rate increases!! This same type of arrangement is probably happening nationwide.
