The company contracted to provide care for 30,000 legal Massachusetts immigrants and a spokesman for the state’s health insurance exchange, Health Connector, harshly criticized a letter in Thursday’s edition of the New England Journal of Medicinethat says those patients are being denied physician access.

“We believe that patients who were switched from Commonwealth Care to CeltiCare had inadequate access to primary care three months into this new program,” Ruth Hertzman-Miller, MD and colleagues with the Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), a CeltiCare competitor, wrote in a letter published in the Correspondence section of the journal.
