Vermont House committee considers road to single payer
Meeting Friday at the Statehouse, the committee heard from legislative staffers who outlined details that will have to be worked out, such as how to ensure the state gets the maximum amount of federal dollars and who would be covered.
There are details such as what would happen if a person living in Vermont works in another state where their employer offers health insurance or if someone from another state worked in Vermont and their employer didn't offer insurance.
On Tuesday, Gov. Peter Shumlin recommitted the state to the single payer goal.
