Green Mountain Care Board Search

State of Vermont

The State of Vermont is seeking candidates for two vacancies on the independent, five-member, Green Mountain Care Board, which was established by Vermont's landmark health care health reform law.  The Board consists of a full-time Chair and four members. The positions of Chair of the Board and one Board Member will become vacant in January 2017.  The vacating Board Member’s term expires September 2021.  The vacating Chair’s term expires in September 2018.  The Chair position may be filled with a current member of the Green Mountain Care Board or with a newly selected candidate.  If the Chair position is filled by a current member of the Green Mountain Care Board, a newly selected candidate would fill out the term of the board member becoming Chair.

The Green Mountain Care Board was created in 2011 by Vermont’s health care reform law (18 V.S.A. Chapter 220) to promote the general good of the state of Vermont by:  (1) improving the health of the population; (2) reducing the per-capita rate of growth in expenditures for health services in Vermont across all payers while ensuring that access to care and quality of care are not compromised; (3) enhancing the patient and health care professional experience of care; (4) recruiting and retaining high-quality health care professionals; and (5) achieving administrative simplification in health care financing and delivery.

Board members are exempt state employees.  The Chair is responsible for leading the Board’s processes, and is a full-time employee paid $144,996.80 annually.  Board members are .8 FTE (32 hours) employees and are paid $96,678.40 annually.  The Governor will make appointments to the Green Mountain Care Board from the list of qualified candidates submitted by the Nominating Committee.  Appointments to the Green Mountain Care Board are subject to confirmation by the Senate.
