Outraged by GIC decision, Friedman fights back Press Release

BOSTON – On Jan. 25, Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) swiftly filed legislation in response to the recent decision by the Group Insurance Commission (GIC) to significantly reduce the number of healthcare carriers available to active and retired GIC members. The bill, An Act to ensure greater transparency at the GIC (SD.2500), received immediate praise from Senator Friedman’s colleagues and now boasts 34 Senate co-sponsors.

“I’ve heard from countless concerned families in my district who fear that they will be forced on to a new plan that may or may not allow them to keep their current doctors or continue the course of treatment that they are currently on,” Friedman explained. “I’m outraged by the lack of transparency by the GIC in making this decision and the complete lack of notice in providing specific details of the changes to those that will be highly affected by this change.”
