New Massachusetts Health Reform Resource
BOSTON — November 22, 2010 — The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation has launched an online resource dedicated entirely to Massachusetts health reform. The new website offers the most thorough and accurate picture to-date of what the state's groundbreaking health reform law does, how it is working, and what still remains to be done. In its fifth year of implementation, Massachusetts health reform remains a resounding success, resulting in the coverage of nearly 400,000 newly insured Commonwealth residents and serving as a model for national health reform. The new site is the first comprehensive clearinghouse of resources on Massachusetts health reform. It captures the unique accomplishments of the law, the work of stakeholders across the state to realize and sustain reform, and the implications of the Massachusetts experience for national health reform.
