Massachusetts Health Reform

In 2005, GBIO joined with the “ACT!! Coalition” to expand access to quality, affordable health care to roughly half a million people across the State of Massachusetts.

To generate political will inside the legislature in favor of the adoption of an expansive healthcare bill, GBIO and its allies gathered 130,000 signatures that threatened to put a version of state healthcare reform up for popular referendum. 

In April 2006, the Massachusetts state legislature passed their own bill that closely resembled the measure being put forth by GBIO and the broader ACT!! Coalition.

Today, nearly half a million Massachusetts residents have access to quality, affordable health care thanks in part to the leadership of GBIO and its partners.
