Public Comment

Public Comment & Public Record Information

Public Comments are Public Records: All public comments received by the Green Mountain Care Board, whether posted to the Board’s website or sent only to Board members/staff, are “public records” under Vermont law.  This means that, absent a specific exemption under state law, any member of the public may access the Board’s public comments by submitting a public records request. 

Posting of Public Comments: The Board will not post public comments on its website where it determines, in its discretion, that the comment contains inappropriate or offensive language.

Please contact Kristen LaJeunesse if you have any questions regarding public comments.

How to Submit a Public Comment

You may submit a comment to the Board at any time by filling out our Public Comment Form

Ongoing Special Comment Periods

While GMCB accepts public comments at any time, we also conduct Special Comment Periods. Special Comment Periods are about specific, current topics before the Board and have a submission deadline. Special comments are reviewed by Board members prior to scheduled votes and, with permission from the submitter, are posted to our website below. Special comments submitted after the deadline may not be posted online but will always be forwarded to the Board.

  • The Board received Lore Heath ACO’s FY2024 Budget on October 2, 2023. Submission materials can be found here. Lore Health presented their budget at a public board meeting on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 and GMCB staff will present their analysis on Monday, November 20, 2023.  Public comment will be accepted through Friday, December 1st to be considered ahead of the GMCB vote which will occur before the end of the year, tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, December 6, 2023.
