Charlie Baker adds 'blogger' to his Harvard Pilgrim titles

Charlie Baker, president and CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, has joined the blogging world with Let's Talk Health Care.

"Health insurance is a complicated topic," he wrote in his first post Friday. "Iím in the business, and I struggle at times to understand the benefits, the coverages, the rules and the jargon."

Cost is the dominant theme and the red HPHC shield is a prominent link to the company's products. A poll asks users if they've ever inquired about how much a treatment or test costs and an info center points to information about the new Massachusetts healthcare law, quality measures and how to save money on coverage.
