SCOTUS Ruling on Affordable Care Act

As the coverage of the just announced Supreme Court ruling filters across the airwaves, the question for many Vermont businesses will be, “Now what?” How and to what extent does its decision to uphold the ACA affect Vermont’s ongoing health care reform efforts? That’s how we and everyone else in Vermont will spend the remainder of this calendar year, prior to when the legislative session convenes in January.

The Roundtable’s Health Care Working Group, chaired by Board member Don George, CEO, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont will produce an employer’s symposium for later this fall, focusing on successful workplace wellness strategies, campaigns, and Vermont-based case studies. The symposium will include presentations, exhibits, and materials that highlight the ways in which CEO-led wellness campaigns have helped to control health care costs. Details will be forthcoming later in the summer.
