Move over Massachusetts, Here Comes Vermont

If you don't think Massachusetts or federal healthcare reform have gone far enough then look to Vermont. The Governor's healthcare reform plan, H.202 has now been passed by both the House and Senate. Media coverage is here and here. Industry reaction here. The draft conference committee report is available here. What's unique is that the Vermont universal healthcare plan uses a single payer model (or at least close thereto). The bill starts with an ACA "Health Benefit Exchange for Vermont" with enrollment beginning in 2014. Then, with federal waivers, the exchange will transition to a single payer called Green Mountain Care. [NPT]
