Health Care Reform in Vermont
Affordable, comprehensive and quality health care is essential for the well-being of Vermonters. Health care costs are rising; access to affordable insurance is limited; and the health care system is not designed to promote wellness, manage chronic conditions, or provide consumers with information to make informed choices.
Vermont has created The Health Care Reform Commission which oversees more than 60 initiatives that work together to increase Vermonters' access to healthcare, improve the quality of healthcare provided in Vermont and contain costs of healthcare in Vermont.
For detailed information about the Health Care Reform Commission, legislation and reports, visit the Vermont Health Care Reform website.
