There aren't any specific numbers (that I see) in this article but I know those of us who are unemployed and trying to continue to pay for our medical insurance could use some help.

Yes, as this article says, Massachusetts offers help but it is based on your previous income, not the income you have with an unemployment check, so it doesn't help me at all. It only helps those who were getting help to begin with ... x times poverty level. Hopefully, this plan will do better than that.
