State of Vermont secondary Archives: on Health Care


Keith Stern: Healthcare the community way through medical cost sharing

Healthcare reform must occur. Current system is rigged against the middle class, lining the pockets of the wealthy insurance companies. Now is the time for a new way...an affordable way to offer citizens healthcare. The community way is through medical cost sharing.˙It removes over billing by insurance companies and is a free-market solution. With a claim system and a price adjudication system bills get˙reduced˙keeping costs down. Holding the feet of the provider to the fire to get a fair price.

Christine Hallquist: Wants to lay groundwork for universal healthcare system

Work with like-minded states to lay the groundwork for a universal healthcare system--despite Vermont not having achieved this in years past, it must still be our goal. Work with Vermont's congressional delegation and like-minded leaders of other states to fight any cuts to Medicare or Medicaid. Support current legislation, S.53, relating to access to universal primary care in Vermont, that has passed out of the Vermont State Senate.
