Health Care Reform Goals
In January of 2012 the Administration released its Strategic Plan for Vermont Health Reform for 2012-2014.
The strategic plan is intended to guide state government in implementing Governor Shumlin’s health care agenda and follow the guidance provided by the legislature in Act 48 over the next three years. That state’s current health reform plan builds on progress already made over more than two decades to expand and improve health insurance coverage in Vermont, improve fairness in our insurance market, and fundamentally redesign and improve our primary care system.
In the next phase of health reform, our goals are to:
1. Reduce health care costs and cost growth
2. Assure that all Vermonters have access to and coverage for high-quality health care (health care includes mental and physical health and substance abuse treatment)
3. Support improvements in the health of Vermont’s population
4. Assure greater fairness and equity in how we pay for health care
