AARP Vermont says it will use its political
muscle to work for an expansion of the state’s Catamount Health program. The group, which represents older Americans, wants Vermont’s
small businesses to be able to enroll in Catamount.
One of the key issues of the legislative session involves
an expansion of the Catamount Health Care program. A coalition of consumer and business groups is
urging lawmakers to make it much easier for people to participate in the new
program. But it’s likely some of these changes will require more state funds.
