"So much of the focus of H 202 and S 57 is centered on controlling the cost of health care, which is a multi-faceted entity. This legislation in its current form will directly affect the manner in which health care providers are reimbursed for their services, rather than address the root issues of the so-called “health care” crisis. Health care is costly due to many factors, including patients who are reluctant to be proactive about their health or who make poor health and lifestyle choices. Before the legislature moves forward with governmental regulation of an entire industry, they should be reminded that they are altering an industry that is responsible for 20% of the state’s economy. In addition, this bill is nothing more than an empty shell as it does not outline benefits, access, or how it will be funded. Take it back to the drawing board before you do permanent damage to the industry and the state."

Andrew Conte of Milton, Vermont
