Vermont’s universal healthcare law, Act 48, provides a framework for designing and implementing the state’s new public healthcare system, Green Mountain Care (GMC). It requires that GMC must be publicly financed, with sufficient funds to ensure universal access to comprehensive and appropriate care for all, and that this financing must be shared equitably.
The Healthcare Is a Human Right Campaign, run by the Vermont Workers’ Center, applied its Detailed Standards for Universal Healthcare to develop 10 implementation principles for designing a financing plan for Green Mountain Care.
