Medical costs in Massachusetts still burden many despite insurance

Boston Globe, October 23, 2008

Although far more Massachusetts residents have health insurance coverage than residents nationwide, a significant portion of state residents are still struggling to pay for needed healthcare, according to a new survey. Some are postponing treatments, and others are not filling prescriptions, because of high costs or an inability to pay bills from earlier procedures, according to the survey. A third of those surveyed said the cost of care is their biggest health concern, and 39% ranked it among their top two health concerns.
