Modern Healthcare

The Vermont House has given final approval to an ambitious plan to move Vermont toward a universal, publicly funded healthcare system. The next stop for the legislation is the desk of Gov. Peter Shumlin, a strong supporter.

The House on Thursday voted 94-49 to approve a bill that would set up a new Green Mountain Care health insurance program under which every Vermont resident would be eligible for coverage.
