Draft Data Governance Rules

The Green Mountain Care Board is charged in 18 V.S.A. § 9410 with establishing and maintaining a unified health care database reflecting health care utilization, costs, and resources in Vermont, and health care utilization and costs for services provided to Vermont residents in another state. Health insurers, health care providers, health care facilities, and governmental agencies are required to file reports, data, schedules, statistics, and other information determined by the Board to be necessary for this purpose. Currently, the GMCB is in the process of revising the Rule that governs data submission and data release for Vermont's All-Payer Claims Database (APCD), the Vermont Health Care Uniform Reporting and Evaluation System (VHCURES).


Through the months of August and September 2018, GMCB will hold meetings with stakeholders to discuss the rules, associated guidance, and the Submission and Release Schedule. In November 2018, we anticipate a possible Board vote to formally initiate the rulemaking process. GMCB Staff is currently accepting feedback and public comment on the Data Submission Rule and the Data Release Rule which will continue throughout the entire process.
