Governor Patrick at a recent Summer Conversations forum in Milford. (Matt Bennett)
The Governor and Lt. Governor are in the midst of their Summer Conversations tour, holding public forums with Massachusetts residents in communities across the Commonwealth.
At each stop, one issue keeps coming up: the cost of health care. Even though 98% of Massachusetts residents have access to health insurance, it is far too expensive for small businesses and working families.
That’s why the Governor has introduced groundbreaking legislation that will help make quality health care more accessible to everyone.
Here’s a quick, easy summary of where we are right now with health care in Massachusetts and what Governor Patrick is proposing. Health care reform is complicated. But this one page summary should help clear some things up. Check it out below and share it with a friend.
Here are some other resources to help learn more about Governor Patrick’s plan to bring down health care costs:
