The Red Sox Score Big for Health Care Reform

April 29, 2009

The Boston Red Sox step up to the plate for health care in their continued partnership with the Massachusetts Health Connector. This month marks the third-year anniversary of the passage of the state's landmark health care reform law and from the outset the Sox have played a huge part in helping to raise awareness of the Connector's role in helping Massachusetts residents find health insurance coverage, says Jon Kingsdale, the Connector's executive director.

"Whether it's public service announcements with Tim Wakefield which are featured on their JumboTron or it's a public education booth at Fenway, the Red Sox have been fabulous to work with."

Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino says that he and the team are proud to continue their partnership with the state's Health Connector agency.

"It's literally been a lifesaver for many people in our Commonwealth; the numbers are impressive but even more important than the numbers are the health and security of the real people it has helped."

More than 430,000 Massachusetts residents have enrolled in health insurance plans since the passage of the reform in April of 2006, and with more than 97 percent of the state's residents covered, the Bay State is far ahead of the 85 percent national average for coverage.
