Bea Grause


Bea Grause is head of the Vermont Association of Hospitals and Health Systems.

Next month, I’ll begin commuting to Albany to eventually take the helm of the Healthcare Association of New York State. As I pack up fourteen years of news clips, binders and legislative studies, I’m reflecting on the challenges and opportunities Vermont still faces on health care reform.

The U. S. Supreme Court answered a big health care question last week. It decided in the highly anticipated King versus Burwell case, that millions of Americans will be able to continue receiving federal subsidies to purchase insurance plans on federal exchanges.
