Massachusetts' health reform law has prepared the state for additional innovations, says report authored by UMass Medical School health policy experts

Massachusetts’ health law laid the groundwork for improvements, but there are opportunities for further reform, particularly those related to cost, says a review authored by UMass Medical School health policy experts and released on the 10th anniversary of the health care law by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA) Foundation. 

More than 200,000 individuals in Massachusetts still uninsured due to cost, application, eligibility, other challenges, says study led by UMass Medical School

The cost of health insurance, limits in eligibility and difficulties with the application process are among the major reasons more than 200,000 individuals across Massachusetts are still uninsured, according to a report co-authored by UMass Medical School and commissioned by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA) Foundation. The report authors conclude that the experiences of the remaining uninsured can inform future strategies for improving health insurance access.
