The Primary Care Advisory Group (PCAG) was established by the Vermont Legislature in section 10 of Act 113 (pg.16) of the Acts of 2016 and consists of 21 active members, three Green Mountain Care Board (GMCB) staff and one GMCB board member. The PCAG members provide input to the Board on issues related to administrative burdens facing primary care providers.
PCAG members are outlining priorities, goals and responsibilities based on the scope of work set forth in statute: (1) meaningful measure reporting and alignment, (2) reduction of prior authorization requirements for radiology, medication and specialty services, and (3) development of a uniform hospital discharge summary.
Meetings occur on the third Wednesday of each month from 5-7pm, with the exception of State and Federal holidays. The group will sunset on July 1, 2018.
