BOSTON—The percentage of residents enrolled in a health care plan continues to increase in Massachusetts, the only state to achieve near-universal health insurance coverage, according to a report.

As of June, 98.1% of state residents had coverage compared with 97.3% in 2009, according to a report released Monday by the Massachusetts Division of Health Care Finance and Policy.

Hawaii had the second-highest insured rate in 2009 at 91.8%, according to the latest data available from the U.S. Census Bureau. Overall, 83.3% of U.S. residents had coverage in 2009.

“Massachusetts' achievements in health care reform have been nothing short of extraordinary,” Massachusetts Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. JudyAnn Bigby said in a statement. “With employers, government and individuals all sharing the responsibility of reform, we continue to have the highest insurance rate in the nation,” she added.

This is great news and the plan Romney put in place is working. This is great for the States but this shouldn't be done on a Federal level because Texas and Mass. are two different places and what's good for Mass. might not be good for Texas.

You can't argue with the numbers. 98.1% insured and with children and the elderly it's even higher. 99.8% for children and 99.4% for Seniors. This is great news.

Romney/Rubio 2012!!!!

It may sound good...But Massachusetts is deeply in debt and this health care scheme is costing taxpayers more and more as the cost of health care rises. I don't see this as a success, only another promise that won't be kept in the long run because there won't be any money to pay for it..

If this country had any sense left at all we would worry about debt first and everything else second. You can't keep spending if every dollar you do spend is on loan with interest.
