Seven states got a "D." Only 2 states got an "A."</p><p>The report was compiled and released by The Catalyst for Payment Reform, a consortium of health care providers and the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute, a nonprofit that works to improve the affordability and quality of health care.</p> Tue, 19 Mar 2013 19:36:55 +0000 Erika Beras 4097 at http://wesa.fm
