VT Health Official Visits with NH Doctors
A leader of Vermont's efforts to reform its health care system says the state's efforts to provide insurance for nearly all of its residents likely will continue, even if the U.S. Supreme Court decides to strike down President Barack Obama's health care law.

Anya Rader Wallack crossed the Connecticut River on Monday to meet with doctors at New Hampshire's Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
Wallack is chair of Vermont's Green Mountain Care Board, which is designing a system for universal and publicly funded access to health care for Vermont residents.
She said one big risk to Vermont's plan is if the court strikes down provisions expected to provide the state more than $200 million a year. The money is key to health insurance subsidies Vermont hopes to offer in 2014.
