The debates of today will determine our health care future. We have until May to design a Health Benefit Exchange that makes coverage more affordable, protects patients and holds insurance companies accountable for how they spend taxpayer dollars – all of which will bring us closer to Green Mountain Care.

Unfortunately, our vision for high quality, affordable health care for every Vermonter, is under attack. Opponents of reform are stuck in the past, clinging to the idea that bigger profits and less oversight will result in better health care. The truth is, we’ve tried this already and it hasn’t worked – in fact, things have only gotten worse for thousands of Vermonters. The cost of doing nothing is simply too high.

Vermonters need is coverage that is robust, affordable, and reliable. This will help keep families healthy, grow our businesses, and stabilize state & local budgets.

But it’s going to take hard work to counter the voices of those profiting from the status quo and those who are determined to use fear and misinformation to stop us in our tracks – starting with Vermont’s health benefit exchange.

Staying informed and active are the two most important things you can do. And this interactive webinar is the first step. Invite your family, friends, co-workers or neighbors over to watch the webinar with you.

The path to Green Mountain Care is just that – a path. This path starts with lots of bumps and uphill climbs. As we face our first big test, thank you for being part of the solution.
