Example – Health Care

A Letter To the editor

Bravo Brookline. The most important news out of this Town Meeting is the cost savings Brookline achieved in health care insurance. This news should reverberate throughout the Commonwealth and the country. Why wasn’t this your front page story?

Brookline entered the state’s Group Insurance Commission in 2010 after years of unsustainable and skyrocketing heath care costs. Advisory Committee chair, Harry Bohrs announced a mere 2% aggregate cost increase this year even though the town increased its portion of premium payments from 75% to 82%.

Our town employees average premium has been reduced by $1100 for an individual and $2,200 for a family from FY 2009.

A recent Harvard University/ Boston Globe poll showed 63% supported MA’s public heath care, 21% opposed it. With results like Brookline’s, favorable poll numbers should soar. Municipalities across America should take note at what has happened in Brookline.

Bravo to all those who envisioned and worked on Brookline’s group health care plan.

Our problem is with national leadership. Why can’t they get the message out? After six years of careful scrutiny and periodic revisions, Brookline and Massachusetts has a heath care plan that’s something to shout about.

Reality – our state & our home town

have NOT achieved the cost savings

of other  major Democracies

in Health Care

.

But, overwhelmingly, MA endorses

its Public Heath Care System

that insures almost everyone

&

has started to reduce costs

.

The Problem

Few outside MA know

what we have achieved.
