Mass Health Insurance is A Blessing for Many of Us
Massachusetts health reform has made insurance available to everyone, including those with the preexisting conditions that limit availability in RI and elsewhere.
And unlike the case in other states, when you have a claim in MA the insurer pays it. I moved from Connecticut where my insurer was rejecting 50% of each claim though the contract said they should pay 80%. In 16 years I have NEVER had a claim rejected in Massachusetts, though several family members have chronic conditions that make them uninsurable in other states.
Only people who haven't had to USE health insurance think the MA plans are bad. Pre-existing conditions can include a lot of things you might not think would preclude getting insurance, but they do.
