Claire Brindis, Director of the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, and Dr. JudyAnn Bigby, Secretary of the Massachusetts Department for Health and Human Services, discuss the major lessons that have been learned thus far in implementing health care reform, including the strategies the state has used in responding to the unmet need for health care services, the state's efforts at improving the health care system, as well as containing health care costs. Massachusetts now has over 97% of the state's residents covered with health insurance, and over 400,000 newly insured. It is the state with the lowest rate of uninsured persons in the U.S.. With California being among the first to follow in Massachusetts' footsteps, there is much to be gained from understanding these initial insights and reflections. (#20614)
