Reaction To The State’s Decision To Let Vermonters In The State’s VPharm Program Keep Their Medicare Prescription Drug Rebate Checks

“This direct help with the high cost of prescription drugs is the first of many tangible benefits that Vermonters will see under the new health insurance reform law.

“This is a fair and practical outcome, and I commend Governor Douglas and our legislative leaders for reconsidering the rebate issue.  I will continue to work closely with them on our efforts to improve and widen access to health care in Vermont.”
