CEO Tori Bayless Appointed to Health Services Cost Review Commission

Tori Bayless poses with Clerk of Circuit Court of Anne Arundel County Robert P. Duckworth during her swearing-in ceremony.

Tori Bayless, president and CEO, was appointed to the Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) by Governor Larry Hogan. The HSCRC is a state agency that sets reimbursement rates and global budgets for Maryland’s hospitals.

Tori joins six other commissioners who will oversee the HSCRC for the next four years. The commission’s primary responsibility is to review and approve reasonable hospital rates. They also publicly disclose information on the costs and financial performance of Maryland hospitals. Maryland’s all-payer system puts the state at the forefront of revolutionizing how healthcare is delivered. As a commissioner, Tori will be among those leading this groundbreaking work.

“The Governor’s appointment of Tori Bayless is a testament to the importance of the contributions she has made to the healthcare sector. Her vast experience with the healthcare system as well as her ability to bring people together will directly benefit the commission and, subsequently, the community,” notes Ed Gosselin, chair of AAMC’s Board of Trustees.

This is Tori’s first gubernatorial appointment. She serves on various healthcare industry boards and has been the president and CEO of AAMC since 2011.

Formed in 1971, the HSCRC is an independent state agency with seven commissioners appointed by the Governor. The Commission began setting hospital rates under the Maryland all-payer system in 1977.
