Department: Financial Regulation
Description: The Green Mountain Care Board (GMCB) is an independent group of Vermonters charged with ensuring that changes in the health system improve quality while stabilizing costs. The Legislature assigned it unprecedented responsibility for all the major factors influencing the cost of health care. This includes hospital budgets, health insurance rates, benefit decisions and major expenses, rates paid by insurance companies and Medicaid, and plans to ensure Vermont has enough of the right health professionals and uses health technology to decrease costs. While in other states responsibility for oversight of these different parts of the health system is split among different agencies, Vermont's Legislature created one Board to consider all the variables.
