State Health Initiatives

Vermont Blueprint for Health

The Vermont Blueprint for Health is a state led initiative that transforms the way that health care and overall health services are delivered in Vermont. The goal of the Blueprint is to provide the community with a  continuum of seamless, effective, and preventive health services, while reducing medical costs.

Vermont Chronic Care Initiative

The Vermont Chronic Care Initiative (VCCI) supports patient self-care, appropriate utilization of evidence-based health care services, and efficient coordination among providers, hospitals, community resources and state agencies. It is a holistic approach that considers physical, behavioral and socioeconomic barriers to health improvement, such as challenges with safe and affordable housing, food security, transportation to medical appointments and health literacy. Eligible Medicaid beneficiaries who do not also have Medicare or other insurance are identified through a variety of sources, including medical claims, hospital discharge plans and referrals from healthcare providers.

Choices for Care

Choices for Care is a Medicaid-funded, long-term care program to pay for care andsupport for older Vermonters and people with physical disabilities. The program assists people with everyday activities at home, in an enhanced residential care setting, or in a nursing facility.
