VT to hire analyst for single-payer design
The state of Vermont is planning to hire an analyst to help design a single-payer health care system and officials are narrowing the options that could be used to raise about $2 billion in public financing for the program. Potential bidders for the single-payer contract include consultants from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Rand Corporation. Bids were due Friday. It's hoped the firm can be working by July 1.
