"This agreement is bittersweet - finally delivering relief, but far too late for hundreds of thousands who unacceptably faced disrupted health care. As administrator of the stateís largest employer health plan, Iím grateful to see a resolution, but we must now focus on preventing future disruptions to health care. This case of contract gridlock demands legislative action to protect patients and require mandatory arbitration when large corporations fail to responsibly reach timely agreements."
