Overhaul of healthcare in VT arrives for cancer patients
The Green Mountain Care Board, which is spearheading the state's push to make healthcare access universal while controlling costs, announced Monday that cancer care in the St. Johnsbury area will be brought into a new pilot program aimed at better communication and coordination among providers. Officials said the hope is to reduce the number of trips patients have to make to different doctors and eliminate redundant tests. The program is expected to be available to about 270 to 300 cancer patients per year, mostly in Caledonia County. Patient participation is voluntary, officials said.
