FREE MIX Workshop: Green Mountain Care: The end of employer-sponsored health care
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (EST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Workshop Description: Conservatives aren’t the only folks dissatisfied with the Affordable Care Act. After decades of effort by Vermont progressives, Vermont is on the cusp of implementing its revolutionary universal health care plan known as Green Mountain Care which will sever the ties between employment and health insurance. Unlike the ACA which leaves the employer sponsored health insurance regime in place, Green Mountain Care will guarantee universal health, dental and vision coverage to all Vermonters as a right of residency.
But implementing universal coverage in a small state is not without its enormous challenges. Green Mountain Care will not be a single-payer system; Vermont will have to obtain permission from the federal government to use federal money to fund the program. Even with the inclusion of Medicare, Medicaid and other federal sources of funds, Vermont will need to raise billions to operate the program.
States are often the laboratories of democracy. Can Vermont lead the nation out of its healthcare woes?
