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 GMCB received OneCare Vermont’s FY23 revised budget submission on March 31, 2023. Materials are posted on the OneCare Vermont (OCV) FY23 Materials page and the Board is accepting public comment on OCV’s revised budget through noon on Tuesday, June 13, 2023.
The Board continues to encourage its advisory committees and the public to provide written comment to inform a potential future All Payer Model Agreement with the State of Vermont (Governor, AHS, and GMCB) and CMS. The slides presented to the General Advisory Committee on February 8, 2021 can be seen here. Special comments can be submitted at any time and are shared with the All-Payer Model Signatories: the Governor's Office, the Agency of Human Services, and the Green Mountain Care Board.
