Massachusetts, which enacted a landmark health care reform bill in April 2006, is now beginning the fourth year of its ambitious health reform initiative, with evidence of strong and continuing gains in insurance coverage. This policy brief, which is based on the 2009 Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey (HIS), shows uninsurance in Massachusetts continuing at historically low levelsat 2.7% for the overall population, 1.9% for children and 3.5% for non-elderly adults. The findings suggest that the recession had had limited impact on health insurance coverage as of spring of 2009.
