Recent Changes in Health Policy for Low-Income People in Massachusetts

Abstract

Major expansions of public coverage for low-income people have dominated Massachusetts's health policy since the mid-1990s. The state in 1997 expanded Medicaid enrollment by almost a third. The expansions, along with high rates of employer-sponsored insurance, have dramatically reduced uninsurance.
