The University of Massachusetts Medical
School recently released a report that found that the proportion that
employers, consumers and the state government were paying on healthcare
coverage was the same in 2007 as they were a year before a new
statewide health insurance mandate went into effect. The 2006 law
requires almost all Massachusetts residents to have health insurance or
they will face a stiff penalty. The report also states, employers with
more than 10 full-time equivalent staff must provide coverage or pay
fees for the uninsured workers. The report continues that in 2007,
employers amounted to approximately 48 percent of spending on coverage
in Massachusetts. Furthermore, consumers paid around 25 percent and
state and federal government contributed around 27 percent.
