Massachusetts has achieved near-universal health coverage since 2006, when the first phase of health care reform was implemented under Chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006, Massachusetts’ landmark health care reform bill. Massachusetts recently entered into the next phase of reform when Chapter 224 of the Acts of 2012 (Chapter 224) was passed, which focuses on lowering health care costs while maintaining or increasing the quality of care delivered in Massachusetts. The 2013 Annual Report on the Massachusetts Health Care Market includes information on health care costs and quality with in-depth analyses of the commercial health care market, including premiums, coverage, and spending.
