Medicaid Access:

Vermont

Liver damage restrictions

Vermont does not impose any liver damage restrictions.

Sobriety restrictions

Vermont does not have any sobriety restrictions.

Prescriber restrictions

For most patients, Vermont allows any physician to prescribe treatment, and no longer requires consultation with a specialist. However, for patients in certain clinical situations (prior hepatitis C treatment, cirrhosis, HIV or hepatitis B positive, current pregnancy, known or suspected liver cancer, or prior liver transplantation), Vermont requires a prescription written by or in consultation with a specialist.

Recommendations

  • Remove remaining prescriber restrictions.
  • Maintain transparency regarding hepatitis C coverage criteria.
  • Remove prior authorization for patients who qualify for simplified treatment.
