Spotlight on Vermont: A Small State with Big Ambitions

Vermont has a long history of pursuing innovative policies in the name of better healthcare value, such as the transformation of primary care as outlined in its Blueprint for Health. While efforts to enact a single-payer system were derailed by cost concerns, the state has continued to push ahead with a variety of proposed reforms including an all-payer financing system and the expansion of the state’s low-cost Dr. Dynasaur Medicaid health plan to cover all residents up to age 26. As Vermont moves forward, the state’s experience can serve as a valuable example to policymakers and advocates across the country.
