A special nominating committee is now taking applications for positions on the five-member board that will oversee implementation of Vermont’s new health care law.
Nominating committee Chairwoman Elizabeth Bankowski says the panel expects to forward recommendations to Gov. Peter Shumlin in time for him to appoint the board chair and four side members by Oct. 1.
The new health care law calls for the board to move the state through several stages of health care system change leading to a publicly financed, universal health benefits program called Green Mountain Care.
A position description and applicant questionnaire are available at the web site of the Vermont Department of Human Resources.
