Report: Massachusetts mandate not driving health coverage costs

Boston Globe, April 7, 2009

On the third anniversary of Massachusetts' health insurance overhaul, a report shows that employers, consumers, and state government paid the same, proportionately, for health coverage after 2006 as they did the year before the initiative started. The study, released by the Center for Health Law and Economics at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, found that employers contributed about half of the overall spending on coverage in Massachusetts in 2007. Individuals accounted for about a quarter of the total, and government contributed about 27%.
