Massachusetts was ahead of the curve more than ten years ago when it developed the Commonwealth's own Healthcare program. Tens of thousands of state residents use the plan and log on to the Health Connector to sign up. Both businesses and individuals can receive health insurance through the Health Connector. Jason Lessertz Communications Director for the Health Connector will join WBSM's Jim Phillips to speak about the state's health insurance program and upcoming deadlines for signing up. They'll also discuss the program's future with cutbacks in Federal funding on the horizon.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
