Massachusetts Senate Bill To Address Rising Healthcare Costs


The state Senate has concluded a yearlong study to find short and long term policy goals to address rising healthcare costs and consumer protections in Massachusetts. Healthcare makes up 40 percent of the state’s budget. WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief JD Allen spoke with State Senator Adam Hinds, a Pittsfield Democrat, about what he calls a common-sense healthcare reform bill for rural Massachusetts.

The state House will hold a public hearing on the legislation October 23.
