Driving in today, I listened to the City Manager on WTAG. Very impressed with the City Manager's understanding of health insurnace, as well as the importance it has on the bottom line of the City of Worcester.
One idea to look into. The City would be better off paying 100% of the cost for the Fallon Direct Network. It is a strong plan in Central Mass, except no UMASS.

We really need to look into ideas like this, since getting into the GIC may not be so easy. As I See It column today in Telegram.
Kudos to the City Manager.
