VNAs of Vermont releases final legislative report

Tue, 06/08/2021 - 3:54am -- tim

by Jill Mazza Olson, Executive Director, VNAs of Vermont The Vermont Legislature has adjourned for the second time in a year—the first being last Fall, when they finished up the extra-long 2020 session. While the session that began in January was an average length, it was far from ordinary, as legislators were largely working remotely. Despite the distance from their peers, lawmakers were very busy this year.

The VNAs of Vermont has released our annual legislative report. In it, we outline issues important to home health care addressed at the State House this year.

Among the topics discussed are:

  • the extension of emergency COVID-19 response provisions and COVID relief funds

  • an increase for Vermont's "Choices for Care" program (long-term care through Medicaid) and other budget provisions

  • workforce-strengthening actions

  • heath care reform
