Vermont Gov. Signs Single-Payor Health Bill Into Law

Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin has signed into law legislation that moves the state toward a single-payor health system, according to a New York Times report.

The legislation creates a board that would have four years to establish the publicly-funded system and its payment plan.

Under the plan, all residents in the state would be eligible for Green Mountain Care, as the program has been dubbed, and all providers would bill one payor, the state, for their services, according to the report.

If the health plan is fully established, Vermont would be the first state to have a publicly funded health system.
