Commonhealth Care Numbers are Rising Again

This article is more than 12 years old.

Enrollment in the state's subsidized health insurance plan, Commonwealth Care, is rising for the first since last Fall. The plan has added nearly 8,000 members in the last 2 months. The new total is just 3,000 members short of the 180,000 members on which next year's state budget is based. The number of residents seeking free coverage through the Medicaid program, MassHealth, is also up.
