Listening Sessions Announced on Health Care Reform Financing

The Agency of Administration is hosting four listening sessions across Vermont to help inform the design of future health care reform financing plans.

These sessions will include presentations on the challenges facing Vermont’s health care system, possible principles for a health care financing system, and an overview of potential funding sources.

Participants will use these informational presentations and their own experiences to offer input on the potential principles and funding sources for health care reform financing.

Attending the sessions will be Secretary of Administration Jeb Spaulding, Tax Commissioner Mary Peterson, and Director of Health Care Reform Robin Lunge, as well as Commerce Secretary Lawrence Miller, BISHCA Commissioner Steve Kimbell and DVHA Commissioner Mark Larson. The sessions are designed for the general public, as well as stakeholder groups specifically identified by the Legislature -- health care professionals and employers.

The sessions are:

• November 29 at Marlboro College Tech Center, 28 Vernon Street, Brattleboro, 7:00pm - 9:00 pm

• December 13 in the Fox Room at the Rutland Free Library, Rutland, 10 Court Street, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
