Subsidized care costs Massachusetts $794 million

Boston Globe, April 2, 2009

The Massachusetts bill for providing healthcare to employees and their families who work for large companies increased 24.6% to $793.7 million in the last fiscal year, according to a report. The report showed that while the state's 2006 health initiative extended coverage to thousands of Massachusetts residents, many employers continue to rely on state subsidy programs to provide health benefits to workers.
