About GMCB

The Green Mountain Care Board (GMCB) is an independent five-member Board whose members are appointed by the Governor for six-year terms. The Board was created by the Vermont Legislature in 2011 through Act 48, Vermont’s landmark health reform legislation. 

The GMCB is helping improve health care for Vermonters through our three core duties:

  1. Regulate major areas of Vermont’s health care system in service to the public interest
  2. Serve as an unbiased source of information and analysis on health system performance
  3. Monitor and evaluate health care payment and delivery system reform to provide public transparency

More detailed information about the Board's purpose can be found in statute (18 V.S.A. § 9372). Per statute, the GMCB has many specific duties that support this purpose, such as:

The overarching theme of our work is improving access, affordability, and quality of health care to improve the health of Vermonters, and we believe that the path to achieving this goal is through improving the sustainability and equity of our health care system. While there is much work left to do, the GMCB is also proud of what we have accomplished over the last decade.

More information about GMCB's regulatory and data work can be found here.

Across our work, the GMCB is guided by our core values:

  • Non-Partisan
  • Transparent
  • System-Wide View
  • Public-Interest
  • Accountable
  • Data-Driven

Throughout all of the Board's work, the Board consistently works closely with Vermont health care providers and health care consumers to enhance health system transparency and consumer involvement.
