From yesterday's Globe:  "The deadline for signing up for the Group Insurance Commission for 2011 passed this week with no takers — a disappointment for those who in 2007 believed state government had hit on a plan to save municipalities millions of dollars annually...[Boston Mayor Tom] Menino said if he gained the ability to increase copayments and deductibles the way the state GIC does the city could save $1 million a month. Currently, the city spends about $300 million for health care insurance, more than the Police Department’s entire budget."
