Study Examines Key Assumptions in Cost Estimates for 2017 Green Mountain Care Plan
A coalition of Vermont organizations committed to health care reform in Vermont has commissioned a study examining key assumptions used in estimating the cost of providing all Vermonters with health care coverage.
The study focused primarily on a report issued to the Legislature earlier this year in compliance with Act 48, the state’s over-arching health care reform law. That report, prepared by the University of Massachusetts and called the “Financing Plan,” provided lawmakers with their first estimates of the amounts necessary to finance Green Mountain Care, the proposed single-payer system that would provide all Vermonters with health care coverage in 2017.
