Health insurance venture propels Massachusetts to top of the list

Boston Globe, August 28, 2008

Massachusetts has the highest rate of residents with health insurance in the nation, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report that showed 92% of Bay Staters had health insurance when data from 2006 and 2007 were averaged. By comparison, barely three-quarters of residents had health coverage in Texas, the state that fared worst. The report emerges two years after Massachusetts became the first state to adopt a law requiring virtually all residents to have insurance.
