New In The Phoenix: Mandatory Insurance

If you are over 18 years old and living in Massachusetts and you don't have health insurance, you are running afoul of the state's brand-spankin'-new health care reform law. In this week's issue of the Phoenix, my colleague Mike Milliard and I take a look at this mandatory insurance requirement, the first of its kind in the country.

In my article, I look at the national momentum toward healthcare reform, and consider whether its direction now hangs on the compliance of a bunch of Bay State 20-somethings. It's out tomorrow, and online now:
Guinea Pigs
The future of the nation's health-care reform rests on the tattooed shoulders of Massachusetts's young adults

Miliard's article, about the attitudes of those young adults, is here:
Insure This!
Why some twentysomethings won't buy health insurance -- even though it means they'll be breaking the law

Also in tomorrow's issue, the paper makes its endorsements for next Tuesday's Boston City Council election.
