No names in AG hospital cost report?

The Globe reports:

Massachusetts insurance companies pay some hospitals and doctors twice as much money as others for essentially the same patient care, according to a preliminary report by Attorney General Martha Coakley. It points to the market clout of the best-paid providers as a main driver of the state’s spiraling health care costs.

Which hospitals?

The report did not identify insurers and providers by name, and Coakley declined to release the names of the highest-paid, saying she wanted to lay out systemwide problems, not blame individual organizations

A good time to revisit the Globe series on Partners hospital system and its impact on costs.

And wasn’t that a former insurance executive who ad-walked across this story while I was reading it?
