Massachusetts pulls back on health contracts
Boston Globe, February 29, 2008
As Massachusetts officials struggle to keep down the cost of the subsidized insurance program at the heart of healthcare law changes, the state has pulled back from new contracts with insurers. The state canceled a meeting at which officials were expected to review the contracts and to vote on ways to partially offset the costs. The meeting was canceled because the bids received by the state "were not satisfactory," said Massachusetts budget officer Leslie Kirwan in a statement.
