Health Reform - Who's on Board?
(2007-12-27)WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS (wfcr) - The December 31st deadline is almost here to sign up for a health plan through Massachusetts health reform law. The law requires every Massachusetts resident to have health insurance - or face a financial penalty at their next tax filing. The state has announced that 300,000 people who didn't have insurance before the law do now. But as WFCR's Karen Brown reports, not all of the newly insured consider their change in status an improvement. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
