Nearly two years after abandoning its plans to establish the nation’s first single-payer health care system, Vermont is forging ahead with another health care initiative that is less ambitious but could still make it a shining star for health reform advocates.

The Green Mountain State will become the first in the nation to set up a statewide all-payer accountable care organization that is open to all payers, including Medicaid, Medicare and commercial insurers.
