Mass. lawmakers pass health care bill
Governor says he’ll sign cost-control plan, but some experts skeptical of its success
Lawmakers overwhelmingly approved a massive health care cost-control experiment Tuesday that they predicted will save billions of dollars over the next 15 years. But some industry leaders cautioned that it relies heavily on unproven tools to achieve the savings. The plan, which Governor Deval Patrick said he would sign into law, contains many of the most promising ideas for curbing health care costs.
