Video: Doctors speak out against Green Mountain Care

Drs speak out


On April 3rd, a group of doctors came to Montpelier to speak out against Green Mountain Care — Vermont’s single payer healthcare law. Most specifically, they are upset by a provision in the law that would allow the Green Mountain Care board to effectively Abolish the right of a patient to obtain care from an independent health care provider with private funding, outside of the governance of the single payer system.

Even thought I now pay for my Medicare supplement and Medicare D will I be able to qualify to get Shulman care in 2014 in the Exchange or medicaid because I’ll no longer be able to afford to pay for this coverage under Medicare?
