Localities urged to switch to Massachusetts' healthcare plan

Boston Globe, March 3, 2010

Massachusetts cities and towns would save tens of millions of dollars in healthcare costs for employees, retirees, and elected officials by joining the state's much larger, more flexible healthcare system, according to a new report by the Boston Foundation. Boston, for example, could reduce its health insurance premiums this fiscal year by up to 17%, or $45 million, by joining the state's Group Insurance Commission, the report finds.
