Single payer health care in Vt: What went wrong and what’s next?

What’s next for single payer health care in Vermont? Dr. Deb Richter, a family medicine physician in Montpelier, Vermont, is a former President of Physicians for a National Health Program. For two decades, Richter has been a leading national and local advocate for single payer health care. When Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin signed the health care bill in 2011, he praised Richter as a leading mover behind the reform effort. Richter discusses her new initiative: enacting publicly-funded universal primary care in Vermont. She also talks about her work with people with addictions, and her reflections on dealing with loss after the death of her son. (January 4, 2017 broadcast)
