The Boston Public Health Commission hit the ground running last week with efforts to help the uninsured in the city enroll in the many health-care options that are part of the newly implemented Affordable Care Act. BPHC was given $300,000 from the Massachusetts Health Connector, which was used to add staff members and train others to make sure people choose the best health-coverage plan.
