Earlier this week, the Massachusetts Senate released a health care report with accompanying legislation that focuses on short and long term goals to fix our healthcare system to lower costs, improve outcomes, and maintain access. The report is a result of a yearlong study and research conducted by the Senate’s Health Care Cost Containment working group on best practices, cost-saving measures, and innovations and trends in seven states.
I look forward to working with my colleagues in the coming weeks to further strengthen the bill to ensure that we continue to develop the most efficient way to deliver high quality health care coverage to consumers at a fair price. To learn more about the health care report and proposed bill, please refer to the following links. In addition, I invite you to share your comments on this post.
