Massachusetts health system is being tested by recession
AP/Yahoo News, February 24, 2009
Massachusetts' healthcare system, which requires nearly everyone to carry insurance or face fines, is about to be put to the test by the bad economy. Unemployment in the state has climbed over the past three years from around 4.8% to close to 7%, meaning 72,000 more people are out of work now than when the law was signed in 2006. Many of the newly jobless may have to buy their own insurance.
