COVER STORY

Modern Healthcare - - Editorial -

As states con­tinue to grap­ple with ris­ing health­care costs and bud­get con­straints, two have set them­selves on di­ver­gent paths. In Ver­mont, Gov. Peter Shum­lin, left, is set to sign a bill that would steer the state to­ward a sin­gle-payer sys­tem in which res­i­dents will have their care paid for out of a sin­gle fund. Mean­while, Florida is on the verge of turn­ing its Med­i­caid pro­gram into a man­aged-care sys­tem to be over­seen by pri­vate in­sur­ers.
