In its formal usage in English, barrios are generally considered cohesive places, sharing, for example, a church and traditions such as feast days. In Cuba, Puerto Rico and Spain, the term barrio is also used to denote a subdivision of a municipio the barrios are further subdivided into sectors. In the Philippines, the term may also simply refer to a rural village and is spelled in Filipino as baryo.

I’d be interested in an updated GoogleAnalytics chart (may be two with about six weeks coverage), just to see if the effect did wear off after a while and also, did others link to your new name with the same link-text (allinurl:…). I hope you will publish a follow up.

This law is pure nonsense, it will enrich the greedy, parasitic insurance companies while providing nothing to consumers. Wake up! People want health care, not garbage insurance products.

Celia Wcislo

In the month of March, several major decisions will be made by the Connector Board that could impact you. The first is the definition of minimal credible coverage (MCC). Think of MCC as a minimum "wage" for health insurance. You will not be able to buy any insurance that is less than this minimum, for purposes of meeting the health insurance requriement of the new state law. You can buy more coverage, but not less.

The two largest issues we will be deciding on are how big the deductible will be for minimal coverage. A deductible is the amount you have to pay out of your pocket before the smaller co-payments kick in. Many of the insured in Massachusetts don't have deductibles, just co-payments. But for someone who has not had insurance before, this product will guarantee that after the deductible, your payments will be limited. Like having a deductible on your car insurance. We told the insurance companies that no one could offer a plan with a deductible of more than $2,000 a year for an individual. An additional issue wil lbe whether prescription drugs are paid for, or not. Many young adults who do not now have insurance, only have a sporadic need for prescription drugs. I personally think that we should be providing affordable drug coverage to all residents of the Commonwealth. The only way to prevent some diseases from doing greater harm is by medication. For high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or some mental health problems, drugs are the major method of treatment in today's medicine.

Many of the ideas Senator Barrios has suggested are terrific and focus on cost controls. Some of them might take a year or two to be implemented, but if we start now, we could keep down the price of medications for everyone.

The second major question we will be addressing at the end of March is the question of how affordable the plans actually are for residents, and who will be covered by the law's tax mandate. Because the majority of people who are uninsured are below 500% of the poverty level, it will be important that we don't reach too far, too quickly. We should not be mandating residents into debt. Health insurance should be affordable for an individual, and protect them from the cost of medical care. The insurance SHOULD NOT push people further into poverty.

So far we have successfully signed up 25% of all the uninsured in Massachusetts, by taking a step at a time, and doing it well. We should do the same when we begin "mandating" everyone to buy coverage.

Let's walk before we run.
