Massachusetts Senate Bill Targets Health Care Spending
Massachusetts Senate leaders have proposed a comprehensive health care reform bill that looks to rein in prescription drug prices and hospital costs.
The legislation was produced by a group of Senators led by State Senator James Welch of West Springfield.
They spent the last year looking at what other states have tried and talking with stakeholders. WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Welch.
A public hearing on the legislation is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 23 at the State House.
