Vermont Health Overhaul

Top Vermont officials have announced contingency plans under which the federal government could take over the state's health insurance exchange, or there could be a hybrid federal-state system.

A U.S. House committee is investigating what it says is an apparent violation by Vermont of the federal health insurance overhaul law.

An article in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine is praising Vermont's efforts to redesign its health care system, saying Vermont can provide a roadmap for other states.
