MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A Middlebury College economics professor is the newest member of the Green Mountain Care Board, which oversees health care in Vermont.

The appointment of Jessica Holmes was announced Wednesday by Gov. Peter Shumlin.

Holmes will serve a six-year term, replacing outgoing member Karen Hein of Jacksonville, whose term expired.

Shumlin says Holmes has extensive academic and professional experience in health care economics. He says she has in-depth knowledge of how the health care system is funded.

The mission of the five-member Green Mountain Care Board’s is to reduce the rate of growth in health care costs, regulate hospital spending and capital expenditures, and curb the growth in health insurance rates.
