A Message from our President & CEO

To Health New England Associates, Members and Community Partners: 

Health New England Supports Reproductive Rights

Many Americans are trying to understand the ramifications of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision passed on Friday, June 24, 2022. Health New England members may be questioning how this will affect their health care coverage.

At Health New England, coverage for reproductive health care is not changing in response to the Roe vs. Wade reversal. Our organization will follow the legal regulations set forth by both Massachusetts and Connecticut related to abortion care and reproductive rights. Members may access abortion services, including access to prescription medications, according to their Health New England benefit plan.

Richard Swift, President and CEO of Health New England, stated, “Access to reproductive care has a direct impact on overall health and prevents health disparities. That is why we are committed to supporting our members and ensuring Health New England’s reproductive care benefits remain unchanged.”

As always, Health New England and Baystate Health work together to advance care and enhance lives in support of our mission to improve the health and lives of the people in our communities.

President and Chief Executive Officer
