Senate Passes HEALTH Act
Late last night, the Massachusetts State Senate passed sweeping healthcare reform and cost containment legislation, the result of a yearlong working group exploration of these issues, of which I was honored to be a part.
Everyone deserves access to high quality health care at a fair price. Massachusetts has always been a leader when it comes to healthcare, and this legislation is the next step in our efforts to protect and empower consumers, encourage innovative healthcare and ensure access and affordability. Our goal is long-term cost savings for the state, without sacrificing our unwavering commitment to high quality coverage for all.
