What is the Health Resource Allocation Plan?
Vermont statute 18 V.S.A. § 9405 requires the Green Mountain Care Board to identify “Vermont’s critical health needs, goods, services and resources, which shall be used to inform the Board’s regulatory processes, cost containment and statewide quality of care efforts, health care payment and delivery reform initiatives, and any allocation of health resources in the State. The Plan shall identify Vermont residents’ needs for health care services, programs, and facilities; the resources available and the additional resources that would be required to realistically meet those needs and to make access to those services, programs, and facilities affordable for consumers; and the priorities for addressing those needs on a statewide basis.”
Why does it matter?
Resource planning helps support the Board’s regulatory work in the areas of Certificate of Need, Hospital Budget review and Accountable Care Organization oversight.
GMCB and partners are in the process of revisioning the plan from the most recent format, last issued in 2009.
