Massachusetts June 24 State House health bill testimony

The Joint Committee on Health Care Financing held a hearing Wednesday afternoon on several bills including one on health care affordability.

Health Care for All reports on the hearings on their blog.

Grigg-Saito informed the Committee that the Lowell Community Health Center serves one-third of the population of Lowell and 93% of the patients are below 200% fpl.”
