Your Call: Health Care Reform

This article is more than 13 years old.

The state of Massachusetts has embarked on an historic experiment: extending health insurance to the state's hundreds of thousands of uninsured residents.

Soon, health insurance will be required for all residents. So, how do you sign up for the new plans? And are the plans offered really affordable? Are you ready to start paying monthly premiums for health care? And what kind of coverage are you going to get?

We'll be joined by the head of the state's health insurance connector, Jon Kingsdale, as well as health care expert Nancy Turnbull, to answer your questions about your new responsibilities and the benefits of the state's health care reform law.

Give us a call from 3pm-4pm this afternoon to participate, at 1-800-423-8255. Or you can email questions to:

> Jon Kingsdale, Executive Director of the state's Health Insurance Connector Authority, the newly formed agency responsible for helping residents find health insurance.

> Nancy Turnbull, Assistant Dean at Harvard's School of Public Health.
