Health Care

Vermont is consistently ranked as one of the healthiest states in the nation.  Recent data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that Vermont ranks at the top or near the top of the list on a variety of metrics, including a child’s access to health care, and percentage of children who exercise regularly. 

Senator Leahy is proud that Vermont remains committed to improving its goal of providing quality and affordable coverage for all.  He firmly believes that all who require care should have access, regardless of their income or where they live. 

Senator Leahy is a consistent and tireless advocate of the Affordable Care Act, supporting Medicare, ensuring health care providers have the resources they need, and stemming the tide of drug abuse in New England and across the country.
