Health Care Action Center
Vermont is on the road to transforming its health care system from one that is broken and out of control to one that is affordable, sustainable and that provides access to quality care for all Vermonters. We made a huge leap when the Governor and legislative leaders passed Act 48 in 2011 and put us on the path to universal health care for all Vermonters.
Now we need your help to make sure we get there.
Reform opponents are working hard to create confusion and scare people about the changes ahead. They want to protect their profits. You can be at the center of the solution, by getting information out to people and helping them have a say in the system we’re building.
Ways to get involved:
The issue of maintaining benefits for Vermonters on Catamount and VHAP will be front and center when the legislative session starts in January. We need your help to ensure our elected officials make health care affordable and accessible for all Vermonters.
Share your Story
Health care is not just about costs, premiums and plans. It’s about people. Stories are our way of putting a human face back on a political process. Simple personal stories remind our decision-makers and fellow Vermonters what’s at stake.
Do you have high-deductible or HSA plan where you aren’t able to afford the care you need? Have you been denied treatment by your insurer? Or in your community, are rising health care costs yet again causing town and school budgets to rise? Your story needs to be told.
Spread the Word
We need Vermonters in every city and town informed and engaged. You can use your local newspaper’s opinion page to share your thoughts with community members. Write a Letter to the Editor and start a conversation about health care reform in your community.
