This collection of reports provides an update on trends in health insurance coverage, health care access and use, and health care affordability in Massachusetts since fall 2006, just prior to the implementation of the state's health reform initiative. The publications also provide a more in-depth overview of the circumstances of working-age adults in 2012, as the state begins implementing the Affordable Care Act and other changes under the state's 2012 Chapter 224 cost-containment legislation. Findings show that while coverage and access to care remain strong in Massachusetts, health care costs continue to be a burden for many individuals and families.
