This report provides a comprehensive update on the status of health reform in Massachusetts as of fall 2009. The report examines the overall impact of reform on non-elderly adults; the impacts on vulnerable population subgroups of adults; impacts on racial/ethnic disparities; the status of the remaining uninsured adults in the state; an assessment of the adequacy of coverage under health reform; and support for reform over time. The authors find that Massachusetts has made significant progress in accomplishing the goals of the legislation, although some challenges with respect to the cost of health care remain. A chartbook of key findings was also released as a supplement to the full report.
