Description

The Healthcare Is a Human Right campaign has completed its assessment of the Governor's proposal for healthcare system reform, H.202/S.57, and has determined that the bill, as introduced, will need some changes if it is to result in a healthcare system that is universal, equitable, transparent, and accountable to the people of Vermont.

The campaign is committed to working with the legislature to strengthen H.202 and make it the vehicle for real healthcare reform in the statehouse.

UPDATE: New human rights assessment of the final bill as passed by the Vermont Legislature and signed by the Governor on May 26, 2011: click here for a summary chart.  An assessment of a previous version of H.202 as passed by the House in March is also available for download below.
