Massachusetts Offers Comparison Shopping For Health Care


Officials in Massachusetts launched a new effort this week to educate people about the cost of health care.  The prices charged by different hospitals, clinics, and physician practices for hundreds of common medical procedures are available online.  So, the idea is people in need of a new knee or an MRI can find the best deal.  WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with the Massachusetts Undersecretary for Consumer Affairs Barbara Anthony.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
