Christine (and all),

Your email made me wonder whether most parents on this list and at Harvard
in general are aware of the excellent free health care coverage provided for
minors by the state of MA through MassHealth.

The information can be found at:


Some of the programs are income eligible and others are not. Though most
families on a graduate student budget are likely to qualify for the income
contingent programs, which are excellent. I hope this doesn't send the list
on another wild round of emails about the importance of public health care,
particularly for children! But I thought it was important to let you all
know about MassHealth as an option to the very expensive and not so great
HUHS. Look into it!
