More get insurance
Another 10,000 people signed up for the state's subsidized insurance plan last month, bringing the total to 115,418, the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector announced today.
The bulk of the enrollees in the Commonwealth Care program are getting full subsidies, but more than 22,000 are required to pay small premiums.
In addition, 7,164 people now have insurance through a separate, unsubsidized program, called Commonwealth Choice. Seventy percent of those people have chosen plans offered with lower than market premiums, most of which have coverage limits or high deductibles.
