Sick Massachusetts Residents Say Health Care Costs Are a Worsening Problem

Satisfaction with Quality Is High, Problems Found for Some

 

BOSTON – June 11, 2012 – Although Massachusetts has nearly universal health insurance coverage, high costs pose a serious financial problem for the segment of the population most in need of health care, and these residents say the health care cost situation in the state has gotten worse. They have a much more positive attitude toward the quality of health care in Massachusetts, however, and most say quality has improved or stayed the same over the past five years.
