Health Care Reform In Massachusetts Brings Uninsured Rate To Nearly Zero
Live Insurance News

Among the latest insurance news headlines to come from Massachusetts is the recent publication of statistics that have shown that following the health care reform, the number of residents in the state who are uninsured has dropped to nearly zero.

Massachusetts already had a bit of a head start when it came to the health care reform, as it had already passed somewhat of a similar coverage law in 2006 under Governor Mitt Romney. That said, even though this provided some of the blueprint for the federal Affordable Care Act, nobody ever claimed that either of those laws would ever bring the uninsured rate down to absolutely nothing. At the same, time, though, the latest figures are showing that the state actually isn’t far off.
