What is the Massachusetts Health Connector?

Massachusetts led the nation in 2006 with a comprehensive health care reform law and the establishment of a new Marketplace: the Massachusetts Health Connector, designed to make affordable health insurance available to more people.  Today 250,000 Massachusetts residents have health insurance through the MA Health Connector, and our state has the highest rate of health insurance coverage in the nation.  National health reform builds upon the successful example set by Massachusetts.
