Massachusetts health insurance gains detailed
Boston Globe, June 3, 2008
The number of uninsured adults in Massachusetts fell by almost half in 2007, according to a study. Supporters of health insurance reform said the number was a sign of success. The study found widespread support for the two-year-old law among those who are already insured, with 71% favoring the effort. Among the uninsured, the level of support dipped to 44%. In enrollment, the biggest improvement has been among the people least able to afford coverage. Among adults whose family income fell below 300% of the federal poverty level, the rate of those without insurance fell by almost half.
