I heartily thank Green Mountain Care Board members Owen Foster and Thom Walsh for their pointed grilling of OneCare’s highly paid executives for one piece of evidence that OneCare has done any good for Vermonters.
As Owen Foster, the care board’s new chair, said, “Vermonters, either through taxpayer-funded health care groups, out-of-pocket expenses, copays or insurance, have borne the bulk of those staggering numbers. … And for that they deserve results.”
We health care activists have been asking this of OneCare on behalf of Vermonters ever since its birth during the Shumlin era. Exactly what good has OneCare done for us Vermonters?
