new state board that will oversee virtually every aspect of health care in Vermont met for the first time on
Tuesday. One of the top
priorities for the Green Mountain Care Board is to implement a number of cost
containment measures during its first year in operation.
The health care overhaul bill that was the centerpiece of Governor Peter
Shumlin’s legislative agenda last winter left many critical decisions
to a five-member board that would determine the nuts and bolts of
transforming Vermont’s health care delivery and payment system.
