VT lawmakers approve health care rules

SF Gate / Associated Press, July 11, 2014

A Vermont legislative committee on Thursday approved a lengthy set of provisions governing health care, despite an earlier objection from legal advocates. But work will continue to examine possible scenarios that might play out for Vermonters from the rules. The provisions on health benefits eligibility and enrollment are part of wider efforts for health care reform in the state, a major goal for Gov. Peter Shumlin and legislators. Vermont Legal Aid believed one section as written might exclude certain populations from long-term care benefits in a Medicaid-funded program called Choices for Care. It offers benefits for long-term care and is designed to assist people who require intensive assistance.
