Errors leave some without insurance in Massachusetts
Boston Globe, August 25, 2008
Tens of thousands of people insured under the Massachusetts universal healthcare system have had their coverage terminated since the start of the year, figures show. In some cases, patients were terminated because of mistakes they made themselves and in other cases because of errors by the state. The state figures, however, do not show how many of the people later re-enrolled and do not track how many were wrongfully terminated. But lawyers and community advocates said they have seen several enrollees whose insurance was unilaterally canceled by the state through no fault of their own.
